Lesson: Grade 6 & 7 one semester 6th and 7th Grade Robotics How Fast?

Printer-friendly version
The goal of this lesson is to apply scientific skills of experimentation, measurement and analysis to a tribot's movement. The relationships between the Move block Power parameter and the robot's travel time and speed are explored.

Students will be able to:

1. Plot the robot travel time versus power level relationship

2. Predict the distance a robot will travel based on the size of its wheel

3. Calculate how many rotations/degrees are required to travel a given distance

4. Demonstrate actual robot travel distance versus calculated values
