Robotics Game of Life – that’s the name of our new scientific journey. We are organizing a 14-sessions course (1 session weekly). The idea of the course is to develop a solution to the Conway Game of Life where the robots would actually play the game. Students will construct the robots by instructions and lots of imagination. Initial programs will be provided by us and modified by students.
- 28 Feb 2016
The course is for students and classes of students. It is for Computer Science, Computer History, Robotics, Math.
Different programming languages will be used for after class activities and solutions to problems. Videos of the solutions will be uploaded by students to FLLCasts.com and they will participate in our Global competition on Robotics Game Of Life. The best solutions will be awarded.
You can ask live questions, post comments, listen to the recorded videos over and over again, experiment with the programs and get immediate and accurate feedback.
The current course is called Robotics Game of Life and what we noticed is that many students that have some experience with LEGO Mindstorms kind of stop at that and they participate in competitions and they don't get the chance to solve interesting problems and to really learn more about robotics. The other problem that we noticed is that because they stop they don't get introduced into other subjects of computer science and they don't do other programming languages and that's a problem that we would like to solve with the current course.
