In WaterBotics, teams of middle and high school students engage in problem-based learning as they collaborate to design, build, test, and redesign underwater robots made of LEGO® components, motors, propellers, and other materials. The robots are developed through an iterative engineering design process. Student teams complete a series of design challenges or “missions” that increase in complexity and require more sophisticated solutions. Ultimately, students produce a fully functional underwater robot capable of maneuvering in a three foot deep pool. Students also learn computer programming as they design and program custom controllers for their robots using the NXT and LEGO® MINDSTORMS® software.
