Principles of Engineering/ Robotics


A one credit course (½ credit POE and ½ credit Robotics) integrative, hands-on, laboratory-based course which introduces students to concepts of engineering and robotics (ethics, design, modeling, optimization systems, technology/society interactions). These concepts are applied to solving problems contained in "real world" studies.

Course Goals:
This course is designed to give 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders a general background in, and working knowledge of, robotic principles and practices as they relate to issues in engineering. An additional goal will be to support our Robotics Team in the area of designing and implementing of their ideas into a real working robot.
