Master Builders Robotastic Adventure (MBRA) Grade(s) 2-4 Do you know any Master Builders with reverse engineering skills? Students will learn in camp that reverse engineering, also called back engineering, is the process by which a man-made object is deconstructed to reveal its designs, architecture, or to extract knowledge from the object. Camp Instructors will engage students in understanding reverse engineering is the process of taking something apart to understand how it works. The process allows junior engineers to create new Lego Bots and modify their Bots to have more power, torque and speed. Students will explore the different ways to make Bots move, vibrate and dance if they want to! Students learn to think backward in reverse! Students will be provided with a creative tool kit to design their bots! Students will be introduced in the first 5 weeks basic engineering concepts and create simple builds in weeks 6-14. LEGO Technic pieces that come together to create movable, steerable, controlled robots. Students will engage in a group four with assigned roles that rotate weekly. • Instructor – He or she reads the out the parts needed for the builds. • Engineer - He or she will look for the parts that the instructor reads out loud. • Builder – He or she is responsible for building the robot. • Cross Checker - He or she helps the builder and gets to drive the robot.
