Student Equipment Purchases
Learning experiences and assessment activities in this unit use specific computing equipment such as mBot ranger robot (to the approximate value of $250). Students will be informed at the start of the unit if loan equipment is available, or if they will be required to purchase it.
This unit introduces the fundamental computational paradigms of robotic systems (sense-reason-act) in the context of a hands-on, studio based learning environment using the mBot ranger robots. Students will learn and practice event-driven programming methods within mBlock5, the visual programming environment for the mBot ranger robot. Problems such as animating movement, responding to stimuli, and creating meaningful behaviours in constrained environmental contexts will form the basis of practical investigations of the robots' capabilities and limitations, as well as the design and development of programmatic solutions.
To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must meet certain milestones as part of the portfolio.
