Robotics lesson 1 - What is a robot?


I plan to use this lesson on What is a robot?


I used this NASA resource:

This resource helped illustrate the the students the many possible forms of robots and their functions. I also wanted to give examples of real world applications that are currently in use, this website delivered that goal.

I also used this video:

To show an example of something only a robot could do, because robots are impervious to radiation, unlike humans.


I am working with day 1 for this challenge.

Day 1


I am working on day 1 for this. I used the NASA video to demonstrate the many different types of robots. I also showed the Kismet video. We discussed the difference in a computer and a robot and what defines one over the other.
