Robotics and Artificial Intelligence

Note:  This course is provided by Pointful Education and is based on a rigorous, traditional textbook curriculum model which includes upper level reading assignments, detailed essays, quizzes, and a final exam.

It seems like many elementary to high school robotics courses are focused on simply coding a lego robot to move its mechanical arm up and down. This course, in contrast, teaches students what a robot is and how it relates to other key technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. Then the course examines 10 applications of robots and how they will change and impact various aspects of our lives and the economy. Will robots simply steal our jobs, or will they be a tool that will create new opportunities and even free humans to use our creativity and curiosity to their full potential? Students will grapple with this and many other questions as they explore this vital, future-focused subject.
