Introduction

Course Structure:
Chapter 1: Introduction to Robots & Arduino
• What is a robot? (Show pictures and videos of different robots)
• What is Arduino? (Demonstrate a simple Arduino project)
• Learning about basic electronics (Introduce components like LEDs, buttons, sensors)

Chapter 2: My First Robot – Building a Buzzing Bee
• Materials: Cardboard, pipe cleaners, motor, battery pack, buzzer, tape, decorations.
• Activity: Assemble a simple bee robot that buzzes when the motor spins.
• Programming: Introduce the concept of coding using a drag-and-drop interface (e.g., ScratchJr) to control the motor.

Chapter 3: Light Up My World – Building a Glowing Fire Truck
• Materials: Cardboard box, LEDs, battery pack, wires, tape, paint, decorations.
• Activity: Create a fire truck that lights up its sirens and headlights using LEDs.
• Programming: Learn basic logic concepts (on/off, buttons, sensors) through ScratchJr or a similar platform.

Chapter 4: Move It! – Building a Dancing Robot
• Materials: Cardboard, servo motor, battery pack, wires, tape, decorations.
• Activity: Construct a robot that dances by moving its arms using a servo motor.
• Programming: Introduce basic animation concepts through ScratchJr or a similar platform.

Chapter 5: Obstacle Course Challenge – Building a Robot Navigator
• Materials: Cardboard, obstacle course (made with blocks or other materials), ultrasonic sensor, battery pack, wires, tape, decorations.
• Activity: Design and build a robot that navigates an obstacle course using an ultrasonic sensor.
• Programming: Learn how to use sensor data to control the robot’s movements (e.g., follow a line, avoid obstacles).

Chapter 6: Sound the Alarm! – Building a Mini Security System
• Materials: Cardboard, buzzer, light sensor, battery pack, wires, tape, decorations.
• Activity: Create a mini security system that sounds an alarm when light is detected.
• Programming: Introduce conditional statements (if/else) through ScratchJr or a similar platform.

Chapter 7: Let’s Get Creative! – Design Your Own Robot
• Materials: Various recycled materials (cardboard, boxes, plastic bottles, etc.),
electronics components (LEDs, buttons, motors, sensors) as available.
• Activity: Encourage children to design and build their own unique robots using their creativity and imagination.
• Programming: Use ScratchJr or a similar platform to add basic functionality to their robots.

Chapter 8: Teamwork Makes the Dream Work! – Collaborative Robot Project
• Materials: Larger construction materials (cardboard boxes, fabric, etc.), multiple electronics components, shared programming environment.
• Activity: Children work in teams to build a larger robot that accomplishes a specific task (e.g., follows a line, picks up objects).
• Programming: Collaboratively program the robot using a shared platform, promoting teamwork and communication.

Chapter 9: Show and Tell! – Share Your Creations
• Activity: Children present their robots to the class, explaining their design, functionality, and programming.
• Encourage peer feedback and appreciation, fostering a sense of community.

Chapter 10: Beyond the Basics – A Glimpse into the Future
• Briefly introduce more advanced robotics concepts (e.g., artificial intelligence, machine learning) through age-appropriate examples.
• Show inspirational videos or pictures of real-world robots.
• Spark children’s curiosity and encourage them to continue exploring the exciting world of robotics.

Assessment:
• Observe children’s engagement, participation, and problem-solving skills throughout the course.
• Evaluate their completed projects based on creativity, functionality, and understanding of basic concepts.
• Encourage self-assessment by asking children to reflect on their learning and achievements.
