Robotics Engineering

Middle school Coding and Robotics students are learning about robotics engineering and how robots are designed to accomplish specific tasks. They were challenged to choose a task for a robot to perform in extremely cold conditions and design and create a prototype, concentrating on the task the robot was supposed to accomplish. The tasks included taking photos and temperatures of locations in Antarctica, taking temperature measurements in the refrigerators and freezers in commercial kitchens or going into oil tanks to check for leaks. After they created their prototype designs, the students presented them to their classmates.
