Project Description

This project involves working with 2Unify, a robotics company that developed a robotic arm that automatically tunes a guitar without any human assistance. In this project, we will be developing a curriculum plan to incorporate this robotic arm to teach robotics to K-12 students. As such, we must understand both the hardware limitations and software requirements neccesary to teach robotics to students.

Our end goal is to use the robotic arm’s built in Python coding language in order to encourage students to use computer science in combination with the robotic arm in order to achieve specific goals. We intend on first gaining an understanding of the robotic arm’s functionalities and limitations, along with an understanding of 2Unify’s intentions with this program. Then, we intend on determining different ways to integrate it into school systems depending on different age groups. Finally, we intend on actually implementing our program into different school systems.
