Educational Robotics (Nezha Robotics-Arduino)
STEM Education’s new skills enhancement program for high school has a dual mission. On the one hand, it introduces children to STEM and Educational Robotics. On the other hand, to provide them with the necessary know-how to build complete robotic devices with the Nezha-Arduino kit.
Throughout the project, children become acquainted with both graphical programming languages and the Arduino IDE programming environment in C. Then, using the kit’s building blocks, students construct robots and program them to complete specific tasks. Finally, they use sensors to program their robot to react based on the information it receives from its surroundings (physical computing).
We particularly highlight the graphical representation of experimental data in a Cartesian coordinate system. The aim is for children to see in practice the measurement of physical quantities that they know theoretically so that they can make sense of these abstract concepts experientially.
