Computer science is all around us. Professionals in every field are using computer science to transform the profession. Students will learn about the basics of computer programming through engaging activities that allow the students to begin digging deeply into how a computer works. Students will analyze how a computer functions.
Students will learn what it means to be autonomous and how to program robots to move on their own. They will learn the importance of giving specific, exact directions in a computer program to make the robot do what they want and go where they want. They will program the robots to complete increasingly difficult tasks, culminating in a robotics team competition.
Students begin the unit learning about what robots are and how humans use robots to avoid dull, dirty, or dangerous work. Students will complete several tasks that require them to design a solution to a problem while following the given criteria and constraints, while also learning about inputs and outputs on a robot.
