Robotics for Kids – Level 2 is a high school STEM robotics curriculum designed by curriculum experts for teaching kids robotics with fun hands-on robotics projects such as building a gesture-controlled robot, obstacle avoiding robot, line following robot, etc.

With its clear explanations and a variety of simple robotics projects for school students, Robotics for Kids – Level 2 will have high school students building their own robots in no time.

Learning Outcomes

After completing Robotics for Kids – Level 2, students will have a better understanding of robotics, algorithms, etc with the help of a wide variety of hands-on activities.

Apart from the aforementioned learning outcomes, this STEM curriculum will also help them develop important skills such as problem-solving, attention to detail, patience, and debugging.

Prerequisites

Completed Robotics for Kids – Level 1 and Physical Computing for Kids – Level 2.

Curriculum Lesson Plan

Section 1 - Robotics the DIY Way

Students will get to build 5-6 robots on their own right from the assembly to logic to writing the code to debug the robot wherein they’ll get learn several concepts that are widely used in the robotics industry.

1.2 - Joystick Controlled Robot – Circuitry
How to control the movements of a two-wheel mobile robot? Visualizing Joystick on evive's Pin State Monitor.
1.4 - Gesture-Controlled Robot – Sensor
What is an accelerometer and how to read a Smartphone's accelerometer on evive using Dabble? How does a gesture-controlled robot work?
1.5 - Gesture Controlled Robot – Programming
How to program a gesture-controlled robot that moves based on the movement of a Smartphone?
1.8 - Pick and Place Robot – Assembly
How does a pick-and-place robot work? How to calibrate a servo for optimal use?
1.9 - Pick and Place Robot – Programming
How to program a Smartphone-controlled pick-and-place robot in PictoBlox?
1.10 - Line Following Robot using IR Sensor – Circuitry
How to use IR sensors to detect a black line in a white region?
1.11 - Line Following Robot using IR Sensor – Programming
How to program and debug a line follower robot?

Section 2 - Capstone Project

After learning robotics, students will make a cleaning robot that can be autonomous or a smartphone-controlled robot. Students can make a variety of attachments which can be used for cleaning tasks like cleaning the floor, or cleaning windows.

The students will work on the project for 3-5 sessions.
