Engineering Robotics is a two marking period STEM elective offered to 7th and 8th graders. In Engineering Robotics, students will design and fabricate robots based on the Lego EV3 Mindstorm platform. Students will learn the fundamentals of system assembly, DC motors, and various sensors as they build their robots to complete real-world challenges. Students will utilize a block computer programming language on their chromebooks in order to complete tasks and challenges with their robots. Students will also have the opportunity to use rapid prototyping equipment such as 3D printers and CNC laser cutters to fabricate custom parts for their robots designed in a variety of CAD software.
