Course Description:  This course strives to create a collaborative, inclusive community of students while learning the basic principles of design, construction, and programming. Problem-solving techniques, mathematics, logic, creativity, physics, electronics, mechanics, and computers are also taught. Students learn basic robot component operations and then join components together to build a robot capable of performing defined tasks. Using robotic kits and self-made pieces, students design, build, test, and modify robots in a team. A number of competitions are held during the course: SumoBot, Drag Racing, and First® Challenge. The Robotics Club is recommended for additional education and community building. Prerequisite Skills: The class is structured for students with or without technical background.

Work Load:  Engineering Journal (in class), robot design, coding, etc. Each semester of the course culminates in an event where students present what they've learned and use their robot to compete in a class mini-game.

Why would you be interested in the Class:  Students gain hands-on experience in STEM fields by taking this course. In troubleshooting robot construction and operation challenges, students develop critical thinking skills and apply theoretical concepts. In addition, a collaborative team environment fosters interpersonal skills such as communication, teamwork, and leadership.
