Module 1: Robotics and Automation
Students explore the ways robots are used in today’s world and their
impact on society and the environment. Students learn about a variety of
robotic components as they build and test mobile robots that may be
controlled remotely. Angelina, Mylo, and Suzi are tasked with designing a
mobile robot that can remove hazardous materials from a disaster site.
Students are then challenged to design, model, and test a mobile robot
that solves this design problem.© 2016 Project Lead The Way, Inc.

Module 2: Robotics and Automation Challenge
Students expand their understanding of robotics as they explore
mechanical design and computer programming. This module focuses on
developing skills needed to build and program autonomous robots.
Angelina, Mylo, and Suzi are tasked with designing an automatic-guided
vehicle to deliver supplies to a specific area in a hospital without
being remotely controlled by a person. Inspired by this design problem,
students work with a group to apply their knowledge to design, build,
test, and refine a mobile robot that meets a set of design constraints. © 2016 Project Lead The Way, Inc.
