WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotics program that challenges students to design, build, program, test, and redesign underwater robots made of LEGO® and other components. Have fun designing robots to solve real-world problems using science, engineering and technology.
Working through a series of four missions set in real-world contexts, students ultimately produce a fully functional underwater robot. Students learn about key science topics essential to their robot’s operation. They are also introduced to the engineering design process and learn to use graphics-based programming to control their robots.
Whether you are new to robotics or an experienced user, WaterBotics has something for everyone. No prior experience is necessary!
