Unit 6: Lego Missions
Students will work to solve First LEGO League “Into Orbit” space challenges. Students should have a solid understanding of programming and building the lego Mindstorm robots prior to completing this unit. The students will choose a specific space mission where they will have to select appropriate sensors, motors, and lego pieces in order to successfully engineer their robot to autonomously solve a mission. The purpose of this project is for students to use coding to ask questions and solve problems in the real-world that would occur in space. Through programming in robotics, students will learn and develop many computational thinking and problem solving skills.
