Level 1b: Robotics Fundamental

This course is an introductory robotics course using the LEGO Robot Inventor Set as a platform. The LEGO series has gained worldwide recognition through its functionality and its educational nature. Its programming platform can be simple to understand at the beginning, yet complex when explored in depth; making it engaging for both kids and adults.

 

The main focus of this course is to train students to program and complete tasks through using a sequential methodology. This sequential approach is the fundamental core of any programming platform, be it in robotics or computer science. In the meantime, students also get to explore the functionality of different types of sensors, such as Gesture, Light and Ultrasonic sensors.
