Intermediate Minecraft/Robotics (all grades)
This course includes one week of MinecraftEDU and one week of Robotics. MinecraftEDU is an expansive game that lets you design and create unique worlds with amazing structures and apply engineering principles to solve numerous challenges as you make your virtual world of Minecraft
Robotics will help you learn how to design, program, and control fully functional robotic models. Unleash the creative powers of the new LEGO® MINDSTORMS EV3 set to create and command robots that walk, talk, think and do anything they can imagine. This class will provide a series of real-life activities covering topics within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics all using EV3 LEGO® robotics.
Students repeating this course across multiple sessions will review information previously learned but apply what they have learned to different projects in each two-week session.
