  2. What is Engineering?
    Engineers are designers and problem
    solvers who use math and science.
    Engineers are creative, hard working,
    passionate, and compassionate.
    Engineers use their skills to help
    others.

  3. What are Robots?
    ❖ People often think of robots as having
    a shape like a person
    ➢ two legs, two arms, and a head
    ➢ a humanoid
    ❖ But robots come in many forms
    ❖ Robots are any machine that does work
    on its own, automatically

  5. Advantages of
    Robots
    ❖ Robots assist humans at work,
    home, etc.
    ❖ They also replace humans in
    performing repetitive and
    dangerous tasks which:
    ➢ humans prefer not to do
    ➢ humans are unable to do
    because of size limitations
    ➢ take place in extreme
    environments
    How do they help us?

  6. ❖ Fun, hands-on experience
    ➢ robotics provides us with interactive exercises for our hands and minds
    Learning Opportunities In Robotics
    ❖ Creative problem solving
    ➢ allows us to be creative and
    challenging ourselves
    ➢ encourages us to learn more
    about science, technology and
    engineering
