STEM Robotics 101 is both a turn-key curriculum for novice Robotics teachers and a collaboration tool for veteran Robotics teachers.
This introductory STEM Robotics master curriculum uses the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT Education Base Set and NXT-G software to teach a full STEM Robotics course.
This master curriculum is divided into Units, several of which contain lessons built around the "NXT Video Trainer 2.0" product from Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Academy. (This product is now available free online from CMU's CS2N Courses site). These self-paced learning-to-program videos are supplemented with lessons on robotics technologies, explicit math and science concepts, and the Engineering Process, in order to round out a complete STEM curriculum.
LEGO Curriculum is designed to meet the needs of middle school and high school teachers who want to introduce robotics into their schools and classrooms. LEGO MINDSTORMS Robots are an ideal tool: easy prototyping, interchangable components for design flexibility, basic-to-advanced programming opportunities.
