Intro to Robotics

Holly Assi

  This full-year class will involve brainstorming, designing, building and programming a robot with a competitive game in mind. There will be no formal curriculum as it is a hands-on, student-driven class to give students the opportunity to gain experience in STEM related fields (there is some online curricula that parents can use at home if they so desire). No grades will be given, as the class is participation based only. Participation and commitment are key to the success of this class. Several former members of the local award-winning home school robotics team "The Battle Bolts" will be providing guidance and expertise to students during class time. Our teams will participate in the Kern Robotics League, where we will compete with other local high schools on four different Saturdays. In addition, there will be several local full-day tournaments that we have the option to compete in this year. Teamwork, as well as learning good communication and problem-solving skills are other added benefits of this class. Parent involvement is highly recommended. Limited spots available. All materials will be provided, however if you have a laptop you can bring to class that would be beneficial, but not required. When: Thursdays, Period 5 AND Club Time 1:45-4:30 p.m. Grades: 7th-12th Cost: $400 (+$40 non-refundable HERC fee) Minimum Number of Students: 4   Contact Holly Assi with questions or to be added to Temporary Class Roster <This email address is being protected from spambots.
