CIS 102 Special Topics in Computer and Information Systems

Course Description: This course is a basic introduction to building mobile robots. Students will learn how to design and construct a mobile robot within time, materials and cost constraints. Using project component kits (e.g. LEGO Mindstorm) they will learn how to program the robot and determine how the robot reacts to its environment. Inputs, Outputs, Sensors, loops and simple programming constructs will be covered through the use of robotic-based projects. This course will utilize the pedagogy of community based learning to connect students to their local community and sensitize them to the issue of problem solving. Direct student participation in the workings of local elementary and middle schools will provide the community-based component and encourage leadership skills through active engagement.

Course Rotation: TBA.
