Robolab teaches students to consider and solve our world's greatest problems by creating autonomous machines to react to these problems. The students use sophisticated Lego Mindstorms EV3 kits. They are taught to write programs to add movement, speech, reactions, and more to their robots. The designs incorporate touch, ultrasonic, sound, and light sensors as well as motors wired to a 32-bit processor called the EV3 Intelligent Brick. Each grade completes different designs which include a solar powered ferris wheel, a bumper car equipped with an ultrasonic detector, a power saw, a light sensing car, a stinging scorpion, a catapult, a walking robot, and more. 

Many parents volunteer in their own child's classroom to help students follow instructions for prepared designs as well as help with student creations. No training or previous knowledge is required! Signup information and class times will be provided by the teachers to volunteer on Students begin Robolab in the spring of 2nd grade and return once a semester through 5th grade.
Donna Owen will be teaching Robolab this year.
