Exploring Autonomous Vehicles with mBot

Exploring Autonomous Vehicles with mBot

$250.00

Grades 4-7 | Revolutionize transportation and mobility using mBot, the autonomous vehicle! Hands-on activities guide students to learn how automated vehicles work by using sensors for light levels, finding lane lines, parallel parking, and avoiding objects like adaptive cruise control. Throughout the mBot course, students are engaged in problem based learning and critical thinking as they learn the foundations of new technologies and the science and engineering behind it.

Students will…

  • Build a robot and learn about its mechanical components and sensors.
  • Learn to code with Scratch at any skill level on: Chromebook, Android, iOS, PC, or Mac.
  • Apply Computer Science principles to real world problems.

Description

Inspire young people with interactive experiences and proven lessons.

Empower your students to take part in the discovery of science, technology, engineering, and math using the mBot STEM Lab pack. mBot is an excellent educational robot for beginners, making teaching and learning programming simple and fun. Combined with our standards-aligned curriculum and expert support, we make it easy for you to create a Robotics STEM Elective Course or teach a Unit in a Science, Math, or Computer Science class.

Easy to implement while still meeting academic standards.

Science

Apply physical science concepts, engage in scientific inquiry, and perform data analysis.

Technology

Create and test programs in projects combining hardware and software with variables, loops, and conditionals.

Engineering

Collaborate, communicate, and create innovative designs using the Engineering Design Process.

Mathematics

Reason abstractly while solving multi-step real world problems and algorithms.

“[The students] benefited from being able to work out their own problems. Some that get it more than the others are assisting their classmates without my direction to do so. It has given them the courage to try the things they want to try. Part of being an engineer and coding is making mistakes. I’m seeing them have that freedom. In the public school system, mistakes are very taboo. I’m seeing students have the freedom to mess up and the courage to try new things and create genius.”

– Devin Chisholm, DPS
