Robot Club

Overview:

This is the site to find all the Mechatronics Robot Club projects... This site is for the "In Class" robot club and the official extracurricular "SVCTE Robot Club". What's the difference?

In Class Robot Club - This is robotics activities and projects that are part of my SVCTE Mechatronics class. Typically we will have 1 -2 hours of time, in class to work on "Mechatronics Engineering Robot Club" projects. These don't necessarily have to be part of the extracurricular SVCTE Robot Club. They can be, but don't have to be. Mostly they will just be robotics project that you are doing as part of my class, where you will get graded as part of my class. Manny of these projects are listed below.

SVCTE Robot Club - This the real extracurricular Robot Club. This is the part of the club where all the projects are focused on competitions. In this part of the club, students will not only be participation in the "In Class Robot Club", but they will be competing after school and on some weekends. Students who participate at this level will need to be commuted to the competition and their teams.


If it's a project that is more than a few days of work, if should e listed and an "Official" project.

Open Lab Blog - This is where EVERY STUDENT is expected to post what they did during Open lab. If you don't post here on the day of the Open Lab, then you will not receive the full points. See the Open Lab Rubric Instructions for full explanation of points. Depending on what you worked on, you or your team mates could be filling out 2 blog entries. Please let me know if you don't have author privileges to your "Official" Robotic Club Project blog

  1. If you worked on your team's "Official" Robotic Club Project, then on the Open Lab Blog, just provide a short overview of what you did (20+ words) and link to your project blog. Then make sure you or your team mates enter an "Official" Robotic Club Project update entry on your Robot Club Project Blog
  2. If you did not work on your "Official" Robot Club Project, then on the Open Lab Blog, put a more detailed blog entry about what you did. (50-100 words + Pictures and/or links or attached code)

If you are working on some other random project that does not have an official post then you should post a blog entry here. Check out the Open Lab Rubric to make sure you understand how the points are awarded. You may be filling out 2 blogs to get all the points.
