In this program, girls will design, build, and program their very own robots using Edison V2.0s, LEGO parts, and Scratch. They will learn about how teleoperated robots work and how to 3D print parts through daily demonstrations while exploring very visual, block-based coding. By the end of the program, they will combine their problem-solving and teamwork skills with their new programming skills to program robots that can solve real-world social issues.

More About the Program

Hello, all! Thank you for participating in Robots on the Run!

If you love coding, science, and technology, Robots on the Run is perfect for you. We'll learn about how robots work by going through the robotics process step by step. We'll be using Edison V2.0 robots -- robots that are programmable in three different coding languages and that connect to LEGO parts.

First, you'll learn how to design and build the robots using LEGOs. You'll be making robots that will be pre-programmed with your own code written in Scratch. We will also have demonstrations to explain how tele-operated robots (robots that connect to controllers) work. Additionally, we'll talk about how 3D printing is used in robotics. There will be videos and live help sessions to help you make your robots!

You will also complete a final project that combines your robotics knowledge with your critical thinking skills. Working with a group, you will design, build, and program a robot that can solve social issues in real life. Get ready to give a presentation on your invention!
