From 1939 to 1946, the United States Government led a research and development program called the Manhattan Project, that resulted in the development of the first Atomic Bombs. The program was highly secretive, employed 130,000 people at more than 30 sites, and cost nearly $2 Billion (at its height, equivalent in size to the entire American automobile industry).
Independent Study in Communications and Media Studies.
Topics in Communication and Media Studies.
This course will cover robotics concepts through readings, demonstrations, and hands-on activities. Online activities will introduce robotics concepts and define how robotics fit into the Kentucky Core Academic Standards (KCAS). In class, candidates will learn how to create and program robots using the Lego Mindstorms Robotics system and will apply the robotics skills learned, by working with a group of elementary or middle-school children participating in a Lego Mindstorms summer camp.
