Course Description:
Robots are playing a big part in our lives, and will be more integrated in the future. Amazon Echo, Google Home, Tesla cars, iRobot vacuum cleaner, smart washing machine - they are robotics and AI / machine learning. Wouldn't you want to learn how to create advance robots in the future, that can help (not harm) mankind? Here's where you start.

In this Mastery course, based on Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy's curriculum, you will learn:

  1. To build and program a Lego Mindstorms EV3 robot, using motors and sensors

  2. Apply design thinking to design a robot based on specific requirements

  3. Learn how to identify where things went wrong and troubleshoot (fix it)

  4. Help Garuda Robotics create a robot that can help the police and fire force during fire cases

To keep the cost affordable, you will be building robots in a virtual environment and will not need to purchase the physical robot, which costs hundreds. But your teacher will show you a real robot based on what you built!

Because we believe resilience and growth mindset is super critical, students will also go through 4 hours of coaching by our mindfulness coach, where they learn about their strengths (and how to maximize them), positive and growth mindset, and how not to let stress break them.

You get an amazing chance to understand what engineers do when they start a new project.

Now is the time for your creativity. Design your own robot prototype in Lego Digital Designer

Want to send your robot to patrol a route, but don't want to keep giving instructions? Now you can.

Can you help your robot make a decision based on its touch sensor?

Get your robot to follow a line or search for different areas, using colour sensor. Also today, you will also learn about your feelings and how to regulate any disruptive emotions

More complex sensors today! Get your robot to sense directions and distances.

Today we get to help your robots make more complex decisions.

Ever wanted to put a claw on your robot to catch or attack other robots? Today you can!

Wow! We are working for Garuda Robotics today. They have a special task for you.

Do you think your robot design for Garuda Robotics will work? Let's test it out.

Last lesson and we get to present to Garuda Robotics our design. How many Kudos can you earn? Lastly, find out more about your strengths today.
