The Phoenicia Library’s Children's Robotics Workshop will be a 3-day morning workshop that will allow children to explore and learn about Robotics and basic Engineering.  The workshop will consist of 3 classes of 3 hours each, during which time students will build and program increasingly complex robots while learning basic concepts from Physics, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science.  We will be using the Lego Mindstorms robotics kits and programming in RobotC (which is based on C).  Concepts that will be covered include:

·         Engineering Design Process

·         Strong Design

·         Gears

·         Leverage

·         Traction

·         Basic Programming
