This unit begins with students understanding what robots are used for and the effect they have on our lives. Students will experience how a robot receives information through various sources. Students will complete one of six career activities. The course content provides one career activity option for each of the six units. In Lesson 2 Mechanical Systems, students use fischertechniks® components to create mechanical systems and determine their purpose and real-world use. In Lesson 3 Automated Systems, students will use fischertechniks components, sensors, solar cells, fuel cells, and pneumatic components to build, model, and test solutions to automated problems.
