Home /  Courses And Programs / Elementary School: Introduction to Robotics Using Lego Mindstorms

Learn the basics of robotics & build battle bots with Lego Mindstorms.


Students will build robots using Lego Mindstorms kit and in the process explore various sensors (light, ultrasonic etc.) and motor actions. Students will also learn how to code their robots to do various actions and build a app joystick for their battle bot. Robotics involve mathematics and physics concepts which will also be explored throughout the course.
