Robot ev3
Introduction to Programming: LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3

Introduction to Programming provides a structured sequence of programming activities in real-world project-based contexts. The projects are designed to get students thinking about the patterns and structure of not just robotics, but also programming and problem-solving more generally.

Robot gopigo
Early Access Software Foundations with GoPiGo

The Software Foundations Micro-Certification is an introductory robotics certification that uses the GoPiGo platform. Recipients of this certification have demonstrated an understanding of the robotics engineering process through repeated planning, testing, and iteration throughout the certificate projects. Recipients have also developed a basic knowledge of basic movement, sensor use, wiring electronics, and writing programs in Bloxter.

Additional materials, software, and supplies are required:

Led circuit
New Electrical Foundations

Electrical Foundations focuses on the foundational concepts around basic electricity and how circuits work. In this course, you learn how to use multimeters to measure various parts of a circuit to learn about concepts such as voltage and current. Along with learning about circuits, you also learn how to control signals (inputs and outputs) to see how components react to it. The culminating project is an e-panel consisting of all of the components found in a typical robot.
