For your reference, the class syllabus is to the right.
We use Lego Mindstorms introduce you to a variety of concepts and skills, including: introductory computer programming, object-based programming, project design and planning, group work, engineering, and working with your hands. You will have the opportunity to complete multiple robotics investigations involving inquiry and guided research, problem solving, working in teams, and documentation as they investigate how robots make decisions and navigate their environment.

Our main curriculum is the NXT Video Trainer 2.0. This multimedia curriculum designed to teach behavior-based programming using the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education NXT Software. In a classroom or workshop setting, it is also designed to act as the teacher’s assistant, driving primary instruction with over 70 short videos, animations, and built-in Check Your Understanding questions that allow learners to work at their own pace. The curriculum is also available online at http://learn.cs2n.org/mod/url/view.php?id=1459
