We Do Robotics
Curriculum Science Technology Engineering Mathematics Language
Science Trace the transmission of motion and transfer of energy through the machine. Identify the simple machines mechanisms at work in the models, including levers, gears, and pulleys. Become familiar with complex motion using a cam, worm gear, and crown gear. Understand that friction can affect the movement of the model. Understand and discuss criteria for a fair test. Consider the needs of living animals.
Technology Program and create a working model. Interpret 2D and 3D illustrations and models. Understand that animals use parts of their bodies as tools. Compare natural systems with mechanical systems. Use software media to acquire information. Demonstrate the knowledge and operation of digital tools and technological systems.
Engineering Build, program, and test the models. Modify a model’s behavior by changing the mechanical system or by adding a sensor to provide feedback. Brainstorm to find creative alternative solutions. Learn to share ideas and work together.
Mathematics Measure time in seconds and tenths of a second. Estimate and measure the distance in centimeters or inches. Understand the concept of randomness. Compare the diameter and rotational speed. Understand and use numbers to represent the types of sounds played and the amount of time the motor turns on.
Mathematics (cont’d) Understand and use the distance between an object and to activate the motion sensor. Understand how the position of the model is measured by the tilt sensor. Understand and use numbers to measure and score qualitative characteristics.
Language Communicate in spoken or written forms using appropriate vocabulary. Prepare and deliver a demonstration using a model. Use interview questions to find out information and write a story. Write a script with a dialogue.
Language (cont’d) Write a logical sequence of events and create a story including main characters and dramatizing with visual and sound effects. Use technology to create and communicate ideas. Participate as knowledgeable, reflective members of the group and class.
