Robotics for Kids (Course Description, August 2008)

 

We will build robots in this course. The robots are based on Dr. Mark W. Tilden's notion of BEAM robotics. BEAM robots are not technically "workers" as the word robot implies, but rather artificial life forms often inspired by natural organisms such as insects. Instead of being designed to perform a set of goal oriented tasks, BEAM robots express a variety of survival behaviors. The robots we will build in this course are made out of simple and small parts. Instead of adding as many features as possible to the machine, we will focus on our creativity and use smart design to gain the maximum effect while using the minimum amount of materials. The project will teach many of the fundamentals in building robots that can be useful for your future robot projects.

 

Welcome!
