This group is to support robotics education, mainly for grades 6-12. Robotics systems to include: LEGO Mindstorms & WeDo, Tetrix, VEX, CBC, and SPHERES satellites. Programming languages to include: LEGO NXT-G, NXT-C (and other variants of NXT), RobotC, NI LabView, ZR API, KISS-C, Scratch, etc. Possible connections to additional software, such as: LEGO Digital Designer, SolidWorks, Sketchup. Also may include connections to robotics competitions such as: FIRST, Moonbots, Zero Robotics, Botball, TCEA, BEST. Suggested additions to these lists are welcome. Can’t believe this group didn’t already exist!
I’ve just joined the group as an observer since I teach elementary technology classes, ECE thru 5th grade. The reason I joined as I’m looking for ways to incorporate robotics into an engineering unit for grades 3, 4, and 5. Sometimes by reading what the upper grades are going I get ideas and lessons that can be modified and used for my classes.
