Objective: To assemble a robot and develop an understanding of the assembly through the concepts of STEAM.
The skeleton – in the assembly process, every part of the robot is related to parts of the human body. The chassis is the torso, fasteners are the joints, and wheels are the limbs.
Machine dynamics – during the assembly process, the instructor shows and explain to the students what a screwdriver is and how it works. They also explain other simple machines like the pulley, wheel, and lever.
Electrical flow – the instructor will teach students about how electricity flows when explaining a DC motor. They will also explain how DC motors are a safe option for a robot as it conserves electricity.
During the assembly, the instructor will explain to the kids about sensors, motherboard, programming language, and different modes of uploading.
Students use engineering skills to fix, attach, and align different components of the robot.
Students will use their creativity to design the robot and add personality to it.
Mathematics is key in the assembly process as children will use concepts of alignment, measurements, weight, specification, management, and configuration while putting the bot together.
