Robotics with SCRATCH programming

This introductory camp gets children to explore the basics of robotics: the mechanics of a robot, how to build and connect a robotic machine, and how to program the robot to carry out different tasks. Children will learn algorithmic thinking, use a drag-and-drop programming tool, and explore how they can automate their robot. Children will also explore how to connect their robots to the internet and make them respond to real-time input.

Driving Question: CAN WE PROGRAM AND MAKE A BOT TO HELP PEOPLE IN NEED?

Schedule

Day 1 : Build your robot

Activities
Learners build a bot with two wheels and two motors. They understand how to use a breadboard and then explore how to use an Arduino chip. They learn about input and output devices.

Learning Outcomes
Understanding Bread Board
Identifying the components of electrical circuits
Introduction to Arduino Uno

Day 2 : Learn programming basics

Activities
Learners explore the interface of Scratch (a programming app). They learn what algorithms are and build simple algorithms in scratch. They learn how to create pseudo-code and execute various functions in Scratch.

Learning Outcomes
Basics of SCRATCH programing language
Identifying elements of an electronic circuit

Day 3 : Program Your Robot

Activities
Learners explore infra-red sensors, sound sensors, moisture and soil sensors, and use them in their bots. They explore actuators like motors and LEDs. They use a combination of the bot, Arduino, breadboard, sensors and actuators in order to solve a real world problem that involves line-following or obstacle-sensing.

Learning Outcomes
Sensors and Actuators
Interfacing Arduino with SCRATCH Programming

Day 4 : Program Your Robot

Activities
Learners explore infra-red sensors, sound sensors, moisture and soil sensors, and use them in their bots. They explore actuators like motors and LEDs. They use a combination of the bot, Arduino, breadboard, sensors and actuators in order to solve a real world problem that involves line-following or obstacle-sensing.

Learning Outcomes
Sensors and Actuators
Interfacing Arduino with SCRATCH Programming

Day 5 : Finishing touches, Peer & Parent Presentations

Activities
Learners reflect upon their camp experience, present their work to their peers, take feedback, create a second iteration of their prototype, and present their work to parents.

Learning Outcomes
Public Speaking
Presentation Skills

Skills Augmented

Reading Comprehension, Public Speaking & Presentation Skills, Writing Skills, Motor Skills, Digital Literacy, Analytical Thinking, Creative Design, Problem Solving, Listening, Collaboration & Decision Making
