08 Design: Robotics: Criterion C
Task C1: Planning
Your team have been allocated a set number of lessons to complete Criterion C. Four weeks of class class time is about 12 hours of working time per team member! That is quite a lot of working time. It is up to you to ensure you don’t waste it, as poor use of your time will create a lot of homework and stress.
In order to ensure your time is well used, the very first task is to create a time plan that you and your partner(s) will commit to sticking to.
Complete your time plan by completing the table in section C3 of your Design Journal.
Task C2 & C3: Demonstrate technical skill & create your solution
Time to make your robot and program it to complete the Mars mission!
- Aim to stick to the schedule you created for yourself in C1
- Start by build the robot according to the physical design you created in B4. You may make alter this design if you realise there changes needed along the way.
- Build a program in Open Roberta based on what you discussed in B4. Again, you may (will) make plenty of changes to this as you test it.
- As you complete each stage, you should create a video of your robot performing the task. These will need to be submitted to Google Classroom as prove of your robots capabilties.
- You can work on your robot during school lunch breaks if you wish provided you book it with the teacher ahead of time. You can not take the robots home.
Assessment will be completed in four parts:
- You will be allocated a lesson for Demonstration Day! This is the day you will demonstrate to the teacher how successfully your final robot is able to complete the mission.
- Upload the videos you recorded demonstrating your robot to Google Classroom.
- Upload your final Open Roberta program to Google Classroom.
- There will be a short Open Roberta in-class test! The test will consist of being given a simple “scenario” and you will need to create a program for an EV3 robot that would solve the challenge scenario.
Task C4: Justify changes
Complete section C4 of your Design Journal, discussing the changes you made to what you originally wrote for B4 and C1 as you completed the Mars mission.
