Steal my framework for an awesome robotics lesson:
It's the result of 10 years of teaching and hundreds of sessions.
Intro: Ask questions, show examples, get them moving around
'If you had unlimited money and the world's best roboticists, what would your robot do for you?'
Part 1: Quick win- get their robots moving, it needs to be something they achieve
Part 2: Free play, let them run with it and try out their own ideas
Part 3: Step it up with a sensor and repeat part 2.
Part 4: Introduce a group challenge: Robot Sumo, Coloured dancing mat, farm bot etc.
Part 5: Competition or show time
Part 6: Wrap up and talk about skills, resilience and evaluate performance
Keep the pace fast and momentum going
Sidenote: This works for most subjects, you don't have to have robots for max engagement
