High School Internet of Things and Mobile Robotics Curriculum

airblock

AirBlock Drone

 

 

Exploring Drones with Airblock

 (Grades 7-9)

The Airblock Drone is not your ordinary drone. Its modular design allows it to be configured as a Drone or a Hovercraft. Students snap it together with magnets in seconds! It is encased in a rugged styrofoam material which will withstand bumps against walls and ceilings, and safely fall to the floor.

Lessons and experiments in aerodynamic and hydrodynamic science, coding, and much more make the AirBlock Drone a dynamo of learning potential.  Students control it with Apps or Scratch Code. They use math and physical science concepts as they engage in the STEM lessons. 

 

 

boe-bot

Parallax Boe-Bot robot

 


Exploring Robotics with Electronics for Boe-Bot 

(Grades 8-10)

Students program the Boe-Bot robot to follow lines, navigate a room or a maze, roam toward light, flash lights, follow a person or vehicle, follow other robots, and much more. Use Boe-Bot robots in classrooms or after school clubs and makerspaces to teach robotics, physical science, coding, and STEM concepts.

Exploring Robotics self-paced robotics curriculum with videos makes a great Introduction to Digital Electronics, Engineering, Mechatronics, and other CTE programs for Grades 8-10. Teach introductory electronics with a solderless breadboard and Basic programming (coding) with resistors, capacitors, LEDs, circuit diagrams, and more.  This rugged robot is built from a kit but also dissassembles easily and can be used in multiple classes year after year. Inexpensive replacement kits ($10) are available for the small electronic parts and fasteners.

XYZRobot Bolide Humanoid


Exploring Robotics with the Bolide Humanoid  

(Grades 9 -12)

Teach Engineering with a humanoid robot for Grades 9-12. Bolide is an affordable, fully functional humanoid robot! Students love how Bolide has martial arts moves, dances, flashes lights, plays music, and picks itself up. The robot stands 16 inches tall and has 18 degrees of freedom and 330 degrees of effective position control. Students assemble the robot and use software to control each of motor's movements to create complex dance and martial arts moves.  Students use 3D Printers with drawings for re-creating all the components joined to motors, allowing for full customization of the look of this robot! 
boe shield

Exploring Robotics with Boe Shield: Arduino with C Programming

(Grades 10-12)

Engage students in learning Electronics and C++ coding with a fun robot. Students build this robot with an Arduino brain, program it, and create circuits on the solderless breadboard to control it.  Students program the robot to follow lines, navigate a room or a maze, roam toward light, flash lights, follow a person or vehicle, follow other robots, and much more. 

The Exploring Robotics Introduction to Electronics with BOE Shield-Bot curriculum provides an excellent opportunity to learn and apply a variety of STEM skills which include engineering, electronics, math, physics, C programming, and computer technology. It is also great as a hands-on lab to accompany an introductory robotics, digital electronics, or C programming course.
