Intro to Robotics

This full-year class will involve brainstorming, designing, building and programming a robot with specific goals in mind. There will be no formal curriculum as it will be 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 it will be 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. We will plan one or two field trips to local competitions, so the students can observe how the competitive program works. If the class is able to complete a robot, we will have the opportunity to enter a VEX Robotics Competition towards the end of the school year. Teamwork and learning good communication and problem-solving skills are another added benefit to this class. Parent involvement is highly recommended. All materials will be provided, however if you have a laptop you can bring to class that would be beneficial, but not required.
