The students make sumo robots, small autonomus robots that will force each other out of a ring.
- Period of implementation: 40 Hours
- Country where the practice was developed : Sweden
- Provider of the practice : Göteborg Tekniska College
- Targetg group: EQF 5 level
How to implement the practice :
Students will compete with sumo robots made by themselves with a set of rules.
Also, it will provide goal description and the limitations of the final product.
The Sumo robots will have a set budget and limitations in shape and size.
Knowledge in programming and automations systems.
Main learning outcomes from the practice :
- - Knowledge about autonomous system
- - Product design and budgeting.
- - Pratical experience in programming and electrical eningeneering.
Needed/Suggested digital tools:
Arduino, PIC or other microprocessor EDT
- The practice was carried: : Hybrid online/classroom
Critical points to shift towards STEM learning and solutions:
It will be critical for the students to have a basic understanding about the principals of phisycal world. Teachers will need to tune in to the students needs.
Positive aspects of participatory learning :
Students gain a critical understanding of engineering work and the design process.
Included green education (if any):
Responsible use of materials
