This sample of a teacher guide introduces basic robotics using VEX IQ robotics kits and ModKit programming software – the activities are based upon a single robot model which can be constructed from the VEX starter kit. Students learn about basic movement of the robot rover, as well as related challenges, in the context of space exploration. Activities include turning and moving to trace shapes, using a gyroscope for measuring slopes, and controlling a gripper for manipulating objects. A set of student worksheets, again using a space context, is provided. These include data collection and graphing activities, during which students learn important concepts relating to robot control. Please note – ModKit is available separately to the VEX kits.
