the hands-on experimental and exploratory study basic robotic structure built using Lego Mindstorms/Tetrix/VEX Educational Robotics components and/or other open source components, divided into many specialized fields that cover their cyber-physical interactive system, sub systems including power, Touch, Light, Color, Rotational, and ultrosonic sensors, control using a basic micro-controller, and basic application programming using LabView or RobotC or EasyC programming software. Junior High students work on grade and skill appropriate projects.
"An A level student at Mathobotix Labs, Tesla is studying buildologie-II to become a future engineer."
Objectives: Students will learn and master sensors (Ultrasonic, Touch, Sound, Light/Color, and Infrared) needed and used to build intermediate level projects. Students choose programming oriented robotic projects. They will build autonomous robots with transport and simple robotic arm mechanisms and functionality and understaning 3 degrees of mechanical freedom. Emphasis on problem-solving, self-confidence, critical thinking, habits of mind, team collaboration, Learning how to learn, etc.
