Robotics is a backwards
way of learning math and science! students learn math and
science, and design skills by figuring out what they need to do
in order to build a working robot.
The RobotLab is about learning science, technology, math, and
through developing, programming and testing of
programmable Lego robots.
In the the RobotLab, the summer school participants will learn about the emerging
world of robotics. By using their imagination and
creativity, they will build machines with Lego pieces using
motors, gears, sensors, infrared transmitter, and the Lego
Currently, we are developing a project-based training session
that interface well with the LEGO system.
The session includes models that teach classical mechanics
It covers motion, forces, fluids, work, and energy.
The topics are approached from an engineering perspective,
with building and designing reinforcing the physical and
