Mrs. Kister’s Junior High Engineering Design Class is at the tail end of our robotics unit. For the past few weeks students have been learning about what defines a robot, advancements in robotics, and how to program a robot. We having been working with the Cue robot in Microsoft’s MakeCode to program the robot to do a variety of challenges. Our final challenge involves building a well-suited robot for a robot battle using a variety of materials. Students will then have a face-off to see who’s armor withstands the best by programming each robot to attempt to pop the other team’s balloon. May the best design win!
