ENGINEERING & ROBOTICS I & II
9940/9941 Grades 11 & 12 3.75 credits/yr. Harkness
Through hands on learning projects and skill based competitions, Engineering and Robotics students are prepared for industry careers or post-secondary education by utilizing state-of-the-art computers, software, modeling, prototyping and robotic building components,and robotic development systems. Students will explore many areas of robotic manufacturing and engineering design technologies in order to help them make sound, career oriented decisions. This program offers students insight into how things work and the opportunity to build real mechanisms and components formulated from their own ideas to fulfill a need or complete a concept. Our participation in First Robotics, a pumpkin throwing contest, VEX robotic competitions and other technical oriented endeavors bring together class work, your ideas, your concepts and visions to offer real world solutions to everyday problems.
