Great intro to my Robotics unit

Comments about PBS NOVA: The Great Robot Race DVD:

I use this as an intro to my Robotics unit in my classroom. We start off using Carnegie Mellon's "RobotC" curriculum (Go TEAM RED!), so there is a great connection to what happens in the video and what will happen in class.

Comments about PBS NOVA: The Great Robot Race DVD:

I have used this DVD in my classroom for years and the students never tire of it! It's gripping story telling belies the fact that it covers the key areas of technology development (even getting back up from failure). Many of the key players are still in the industry so an add-on "where are they now" assignment demonstrates just how far we've come from this challenge.
