This is a beginning course in robotics. The first semester will focus on introducing the various sensors, motors, and pieces of the kit while building understanding of the programming application. In the second half of the year, challenges will be given that will require students build and program robots independently.
This course is challenge based and will build on the skills developed in introduction to robotics class. The first semester will take a more extensive look at existing robots and allow exploration of current real-life applications of the tools available in our own kits. Students will then be challenged to “Make it move, make it smarter.” Students are expected to work hands-on and document the process as they design, build, and program their robots to complete the challenges.
