Overview

Students answer questions such as, “What can a robot do?” and “How can a robot be coded to do so?” This course is an exploration of how robots can and have replaced human jobs and the application of programming robots to accomplish certain tasks. By applying their knowledge of how robots function and the purposes for which they are used, students will learn how to code in the mBlockly application and program their own mBot robots for a specific purpose. The final lessons of the course include a team competition in which students apply the skills they’ve learned and a debate in which students consider important ethical questions around the use of robots to replace human workers in the modern world.
