Link to Build: ExpressBot Instructions as a PDF
ExpressBot Instructions as a Webpage
Once the bot was built I spent a couple days going over the software and a day going over the parts of the robot and discussing the different sensors the robot could have. I then gave the students challenges:
Dance Challenge: Students select school- appropriate music approved by me and choreograph the robot to dance/move to the sound
Maze Challenge: Students design a maze for other teams to complete. Teams then program the robot to complete their assigned maze.

Special shoutout to a group of students working hard to learn about motors! These kids have an excellent resource they suggest you use to learn more about Tesla and the Induction Motor.
A good resource that has lots more games on it https://www.angieslist.com/articles/electrical-education-science-lessons-and-activities.htm
