Hello 7th and 8th grade Skyridge students – my name is Ms. Swezea. I am thrilled to bring Robotics to Skyridge this year!! Robotics is a hands on course that teaches how to problem solve while creatively thinking outside the box. Students will complete a variety of tasks using the Lego Mindstorm system. Tasks are broken into two major categories – the Lego build and the application of the programming software on a small Windows computer. There will be some coding involved in the programming of the software to move our robots in a variety of ways. Students will work in groups to brainstorm possibilities, test and modify their robot. It will be a wonderful trimester!
