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.
