About THis class

Exploring how driverless cars work by programming our robots

Exploring how driverless cars work by programming our robots

You can have your robot and code it too!

You can have your robot and code it too!  We've sourced the coolest robots - many "hot" off the Kickstarter presses. In this Robots in the Real World class, students combine their love of playing with robots with their thirst to learn to code.  

Using visual programming apps, students code their robots to go on adventures and complete challenges. Students also learn the fundamentals of coding, exploring key topics such as conditional statements and nested loops.  

We then look inside the technological innovation as well as the business side of designing and building robots. How do robots get used in the real world - whether on our roads or in our skies? How do robotics companies decide how to model their robots? Why does Google’s latest model for the self-driving car look like a smiling face?
