Students are robotics engineers during this high tech hands-on experience. They learn about the different parts of robots (sensors, control system, power source, etc) while constructing modular robots in teams to perform different STEM challenges. By using critical thinking and trial and error, students discover how robots can be designed to help humans accomplish difficult tasks easily.
This one hour in-school field trip is designed for no more than 35 students to keep the presentations engaging with hands-on experiments. One of our STEAM City team members sets up a table with small group supplies. We recommend reserving one room for your in-school field trip and each group rotates. Presentations may be setup in the classroom, media center, gym, auditorium, library or cafeteria. The best room arrangement is with 6 stations (large tables or desks pushed together) to accommodate small group stations. We are flexible if a central location or stations are unavailable and are happy to discuss different options for students.
