From here, students conduct a variety of simple experiments in class, hypothesizing, observing and recording their results collaboratively. Students perform arithmetic calculations and present findings in a scientific fashion. From the special place of robotics in Japanese society to futuristic technology, this unit addresses the theme of science and technology as part of the broader Japanese culture.
