Be introduced to the basic concepts of Robotics by building and programming your own robot. Course information is tied to lab experiments! Work to build and program your own robot, developed by the FIRST Robotics organization. Explore the concepts of sensors, path planning, kinematics, feedback and feed forward control. You will have the opportunity to apply and synthesize knowledge regarding physics, technology, engineering and math, while meeting national STEMS standards. A computer based curriculum and assumes no previous robotics knowledge. Students work step-by-step through the interactive lessons using both computers and hands on lab activities to build, program, and test a “VEX” robot.
