Introduction to Robotics will offer students the opportunity to design, build and program a variety of robots using state of the art materials and programming languages, as they apply the fundamentals of science, math, and technology. The course will introduce the engineering process as students work through constructing robots. This robotics course does not replace the traditional math and science courses needed to pursue a degree in engineering. It is meant to supplement the students’ content experience so students considering an engineering career will appreciate the connection between robotics and engineering. Students will apply core concepts of traditional sciences as physics, chemistry and biology in the engineering/robotics pathway. Students will learn to use two different programming languages. Students should have a high interest in robotics. Prerequisites: Algebra I (B or higher is recommended) and keyboarding skills.
