COURSE NAME: ROBOTICS
GRADE LEVEL: 9-12 (Semester 1)
NUMBER OF PERIODS: 1
The class consists of various experiences in design (2D & 3D modeling), mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and robot programming. Students will experience the basics in each type of engineering through Solidworks design, Electronic component layout, material fabrication and Labview programming. This can be accomplished through challenges created by USFIRST for LEGO and TETRIX robotics kits or the creation of a functional engineering project. This class also overlaps the Robotics team season by two weeks. Should the student decide to join the team they will have this time to begin work on the new challenge.
- Explore the options of engineering
- Design a functional machine
- Fabricate designed machine
- Layout electrical components
- Program the functions of the chosen machine
LENGTH OF CLASS:
44 Minutes, 5 days/week, 18 weeks
Use and Maintain Technological Products and Systems – Students will develop the abilities to use and maintain technological products and systems.
