In 5 lessons, this module introduces students to the fundamentals of robotics. Students build and program a basic robot that can respond intelligently to its environment, solve challenges, and interact with other robots. The robot only has one motor and cannot turn (and is therefore easy to build and maintain), but the activities in each lesson challenge students to use sensors, mechanical implements, and strategic thinking to solve problems.
