Robotics 1

Suggested Grades: 10-12
Prerequsites: None

The first in a sequence of courses that prepares individuals with a lab-based, hands-on curriculum combining electrical, mechanical and engineering principles. Students will learn to design, build, program, and control robotic devices. A rigorous study and application of electrical concepts will include: sources of energy, electrical safety, use and identification of basic electronic components, sensors and actuators. Engineering concepts will include: mechanical design, prototype development, design testing, programming, and proper engineer documentation.

Course of Study Includes

  • Safety
  • History of Robotics
  • Programming Robots and Automated Systems
  • Working in Teams
  • Engineering Design Process
  • Documentation
