Do they? Some might say robots are just machines and, thus, cannot think. However, they have capacity to make decision based on the programs created for them. This semester, middle school continues with their robotics classes by exploring how robots think.
Robots think by sensing their environment through its sensors. A robot’s sensor is comparable to that of a human being. Robots see through their ultrasonic and light sensors; feel through the touch sensors; hear through the sound sensor; and move through their motors.
Related to this, students were taught how to systematically break down behaviors to solve robotic challenges. Creating flowcharts was a method to demonstrate this learning.
