Engineering & Robotics: Class Catalog
Spherobot rocks, rolls, and lights its way through mazes and over obstacles. With a built-in LED matrix as well as speed and directional sensors, the BOLT will guide students through problem-solving while laying a foundation for real-world robotics. This first level is geared toward younger students new to programming and robotics. The emphasis will initially be on problem solving and understanding how robots work. Students will use the Sphero Draw interface to complete challenges and to prepare for block based programming in Level 2 and script programming in Level 3.
We'll design and test a variety of aircraft including balloons, planes, rockets, and drones. Class ends with a drone obstacle course competition. The cost of the class includes all class materials
MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL PROJECTS
Electricity and mechanical engineering go hand in hand as students design and build a variety of projects. Through the completion of hands-on activities and challenges, students are encouraged to be creative problem solvers, critical thinkers and masters of the engineering design process while exploring concepts and questions that may not be covered in traditional science classes. Instructors will guide students as they imagine, plan, design, create, and improve upon their solutions. The emphasis is on practicing with real world examples in a real world environment. The cost of the class includes all class materials
ROBOTICS WITH EV3
This robotics course pairs building with coding as we explore the various types of sensors and their functions in the real world. Students will build and program their robotic sensors to pay attention to their surroundings and ensure that their robot can successfully maneuver itself to carry out missions. This class will use logic, problem-solving and mathematics skills to think critically about the design of robots.
