This course covers the fundamentals of computer programming, electronics, and robotics in a collaborative hands-on environment. Students use Arduino’s electronic platform, which is an easy-to-use circuit board that can be wired and programmed to do thousands of different projects.
They have worked on a series of projects throughout the year, and the final quarter will have the students working in groups to design and create their own projects. The objective of the course is for students to engage in the engineering design process while creating their own robots. Students will work in groups to learn how to collaborate on projects and communicate their ideas well.
