Standards Aligned Curriculum

Each lesson is aligned to specific academic standards established by the CSTA and Next Generation Science Standards NGSS.

What Can The Micro-Bot Do?

  • Creator Board Microcontroller: Premium open-source Arduino based platform featuring 14 digital input/output pins, and 6 analog inputs.

  • Motor Driver: Dual motor controller module allows you to control the speed and direction of two DC motors. Space themed challenges test your knowledge!

  • Ultrasonic Sensor: Ultrasonic sensors measure distance by using ultrasonic waves. The sensor emits an ultrasonic wave and receives the wave reflected back from an object. Ultrasonic sensors are used to help the Creator Bot avoid obstacles.

  • Line Sensors: Two line sensors provide optimal performance when following a path. The sensors detect reflected light coming from its own infrared LED.

  • Breadboard: Fundamental component in learning to build circuits. The breadboard is an optimal way to learn circuits and basic engineering!​ LEDs, Buttons, Switches, Potentiometers, and more can be plugged into the breadboard to create complete circuits!
