The robotics course is intended for students with a strong interest in robotics and, in particular, in competing at the level of the First Tech Challenge or other robotics events. Students focus on the mechanics involved in motion, steering, elevating, tossing, and more. They learn how to safely wire the robots with batteries, motors, and sensors. Students also become expert programmers using platforms such as RobotC, Labview, or Arduino to control their robots. This is a very hands-on course and requires a competitive edge.
