Course #8600650, 0.5 credit S1: June 12-28
This course is an introduction to designing, building and creating personalized robotics projects under the guidance of qualified instructors and professionals working in the field. During this three-week course, students will learn many facets of the design and production process in a dynamic, hands-on, collaborative environment. Students will learn basic programming, 3D–view design, soldering, and tool safety. The planning and realization of student projects will be a major component of the course. Projects may include, but are not limited to, the building of versatile and robust robots designed for more sophisticated tasks and to a series of problem challenges. There will be two field trips. One trip will be to EPCOT for a behind-the-scenes Disney Educational Tour on the Evolution of Technology. Students will discover the progressive nature of technology as well as explore the factors that impact technology. The second trip will be to NASA/Kennedy Space Center for a special tour during which we will visit key areas dedicated to Aerospace Engineering. This course promotes creativity, problem solving, and ingenuity. At the conclusion of the course, all participants will have completed a thorough robotics project (individual or team) with the intent for using the robots in a science competition. Course does not replace 9th grade Biology course research requirement. Materials and trip costs included in fee. *No Prerequisites. Limited Enrollment | 8:00 a.m. - 2:15 p.m.
