Robotics_logo1Suitable for: 6th-9th grade
Average lesson duration: 90 minutes

Robotic and Software Engineering (R&SE), course focuses on exploring the world of robotics from a professional engineering perspective. Special emphasis on programming solutions promotes the creation of sophisticated and accurate robots.  This encourages the comprehensive learning of science, technology, mechanical and software engineering, and math (STEM).

In order to provide a real life simulation of the complex engineering challenges that exist in the industry, R&SE enrichment program uses extensive teamwork and collaborative efforts. The program is modeled after university engineering curricula in order to prepare students for the industrial world. Participants will tackle engineering challenges similar to that of university courses and solve them by using the EV3 graphics programing.

Overview of Robotic and Software Engineering curriculum

e2 Young Engineers enrichment program teach in such a way that our instructors build upon previous programs’ curricula. We always encourage newcomers and reteach lessons to make sure all students are up to speed. R&SE develops a wide range of mechanical and software engineering skills.

In addition to lessons learned in our RoboLEGO program (please read RoboLEGO page for more information about its curriculum), in R&SE students will learn commands, conditions, loops, planning methods, dynamic programming, applied mathematics, and operators.
