Program Overview

This program introduces you to the world of simple machines. You start out by making a simple remote controlled game using servos and controllers. You learn to work with tools and to apply the principles of levers, gears and pulleys; you learn to apply the principles of design in general and game design in particular; you learn to work with servos and controllers. At the end of the course you get to carry home the game you design. Successful completion of the course paves your way to the second level of the Robotics program. Your final project entitles you and your school to participate in regional and national skills competitions.

In subsequent levels you deepen your understanding of the Robotics field: you build a remote controlled mechanical claw; remote controlled cars (with speed controllers, motors, gears and steering systems); and you also learn to apply the principles of pneumatics to the RC devices you build. More advanced levels include programming, computer aided design and welding.

This foundational program dovetails with offerings in Vex and Lego based platforms. The program puts additional emphasis on demonstrating mathematical competency that you need to master in order to do well in an increasingly technology-driven world. Additionally, you learn critical 21st century life skills, such as collaboration, creativity, communication, problem solving, project management, and critical thinking.
