Joshua Hopper - Robotics


               Hello, my name is Joshua Hopper, I'll be your Robotics teacher this year.  I've been teaching 8 years in Houston, TX. 


     I hope you have had an enjoyable and relaxing summer.  The following information will help you to succeed in Robotics this year.  It will be a fun and exciting journey if you follow the rules and open your mind to the material at hand.  Together we will be Growing Consumers of Technology into Creators of Technology.  

The goal of Robotics is curriculum is divided into Units, several of which contain Lessons built around the Introduction to Programming LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 curriculum from Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Academy. These self-paced learning-to-program videos are supplemented with lessons on robotics technologies, explicit math and science concepts, and the Engineering Process, in order to round out a complete STEM curriculum.  

In the education realm, we should never be solely focusing on ‘Teaching Robotics’; instead we should be using ‘Robots to Teach’.  Just like any other educational tool, Robotics platforms are just a means to teach different concepts. The lessons and activities in my classroom are created to provide you with multiple opportunities for learning in a hands-on, minds-on design.
