what is a robot
What is a Robot?
  • Dating back to ancient texts, humans have sought a mechanic or non-human assistant to accomplish tasks that may be difficult, repetitive or unpleasant.
  • Starting with early Golems and predicted to artificial intelligence, the idea of a non-living assistant has always been a part of humanities imagination.
  • The first robot was introduced onstage in 1921 in Prague, Czech Republic, during a Karl Capek play entitled Rossum\'s Universal Robots.
  • Robots in your household:
  • Robots in industry:
  • Robots in this room:
  • Other terminology
    • Autonomous
    • Self-directed
robots in the classroom
Robots in the classroom?
  • STEM curriculum
    • Math – most advanced robots programming has a basis in mathematical reasoning.
    • Science – generally identified within physical science (torque, movement is gears, levers, other simple machines), electricity, and more.
    • Technology – the data storage involved in programming
    • Engineering – the design and problem solving portions
  • Social studies
    • Look at the historical context
    • Science fiction (futurism)
  • Language
    • Writing about their planning and discover
    • Creative writing

LEGO
  • MSU & the College of Engineering do NOT host any sort of LEGO programs.
  • Please contact Randall Hicks at Stennis for this. He is great.
  • LEGO Robots can be used far beyond the competition cycle.
  • Teachengineering.org is a great website with multiple applications.
