Today, more than any other time in history, robots play a significant role in everyday life. For the average person it is impossible to go through a day without coming into contact, one way or another, with a robotic device. This unit introduces fifth and sixth grade students to the development of robotics during the 20th and 21stcenturies while illustrating the prevalence of robots in the world today. Students will use the scientific method to develop their own designs for a robot that could be useful in daily life. Although the subject of robotics is extremely vast, we have selected just a small portion to cover in this unit. Teachers should plan three to four weeks to cover the lessons that follow, excluding the transfer activity.
