Attitude to failure
Always try again, failure is to give up too early. Trying a few extra times is the way to go.
When you have a problem - simply ask a question.
Come prepared for class
Read materials before coming to class, so that you have more time to play with the robots.
Here are some of the expectations that we set for you while taking the course.
The first thing is that you should work as a team. If you are taking this course in a group with other students always try to work as a team. So two people, three trying to solve a single task. This is the way you work as a team. And don't try to do it yourself. Try to share, to talk with the others, to discuss and to come up with a solution. So, try to work as a team. Sometimes when you make a program or a construction in the course it won't work from the first time. There will be some problems there and you might consider this a failure but the important thing here is to try and to ask questions and to be open-minded and whenever you have a problem try to experiment with the task. Try to modify the construction or the program. And if you have difficulties you can always ask. You can ask us below in the comment section below. You can ask the instructor and you can also ask your classmates or the students that are in your group. So it's very important to accept that sometimes the programs won't work and when you have a problem always ask. The next expectation is to always read the module before coming to class. Especially if you are doing this course in a group with other students. And why is this important? Because if you get to know the robot before the class the tasks, the small theory that we have, the new material what will happen in the class is that you'll have much more time for the fun part for constructing, and for programming, and for using these robots. And the more tasks that you solve that you'll feel better.
There are so many advantages for this. So always try to read and to prepare before coming to class so that you have more time in class to do more things.
