Learn the technology of the future and the fundamentals of engineering with LEGO Mindstorms. This course will involve students in the development, building and programming of a LEGO Mindstorm robot. Each student will be assigned to a team of two and will complete their coursework as a group. Students will work hands-on in teams to design, build, program and document their progress. Topics may include motor control, gear ratios, torque, friction, sensors, timing, program loops, logic gates, decision-making, timing sequences, propulsion systems and binary number systems. Student designed robots will be programmed to compete in various courses as developed by First Lego League.
