Autonomous Robotics STEM PBL Unit

SKU: W46560
$4,995.00 (USD)

Description

STEM PBL Units enable students to make STEM connections locally and regionally by completing STEM projects and corresponding STEM PBL Activators. The framework of our STEM PBL Units includes a meaningful STEM challenge, authentic inquiry, student choice, applied development, and public engagement. Additionally, all STEM PBL Units contain 3-D printing connections, career connections, and alignment to the national career clusters.

In the Autonomous Robotics STEM PBL Unit, students are challenged by completing any of the three Activators chosen by them or the teacher. PBL Activators available include Assistive Robotics, where students design, build, and program a robot that helps meet the needs of people who are disabled; Community Cleaners, where students design, build, and program an army of sanitation or cleaning robots; and Robo-facturing, where students design, build, and program a robot that performs a manufacturing task from a local manufacturing company.

The unit comes with materials and equipment needed for a class of 24 students, a teacher’s guide containing activity details and instructions, and a guide with three STEM PBL Activators containing starter ideas, cross-curricular connections, a concept map, and career cluster alignment. A Getting Started with STEM PBL e-learning course comes with the purchase of a unit.
