Robotics introduces the students to team building, construction, basic programming, and problem solving strategies. This course will involve students in the development, building, and programming of a competition robot in the FIRST program. Students will work hands-on in teams to design, build, program, and document their progress. Topics may include motor control, gear ratios, torque, friction, sensors, timing, program loops, logic gates, decision-making, timing sequences, propulsion systems, and binary number systems. Students
will increase skill and comfort level with each year of involvement. Robotics can be taken as a co-curricular course as well.
