Robotics: Design, Build & Test!

Instructors: Erik Christensen and Michelle Sales

In this class students design, build, and test robots using LEGO systems. Looking at real-world problems, students develop their mechanical, visual/spatial, math and critical thinking skills as they propose possible solutions. Anticipate possible visits to UW resources like the Paul Allen rare book collection and the Disabilities Lab. Students will share technology resources and work cooperatively. No experience is required but students should come to class with an open mind and a willingness to participate fully!
