Experienced robotics enthusiasts interested in STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) will work in teams to learn hands-on advanced robotics and other tech skills, all while being guided by experienced mentors and instructors.
The teams will prepare and be invited to compete in the BotQuest Tournament at the end of the season (at no additional cost). Participants will find their inner engineer and programmer to create amazing projects with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, LEGO EV3 kits, and other resources at their fingertips! Participants will be able to work on their problem solving skills while learning how to think critically and creatively in their teams.
Each season, the club will focus on different projects and concepts using different resources and tools, and will prepare the teams to compete in the BotQuest tournament, which changes with the season.
Previous experience in programming or robotics required.
Club Robotics – Winter
Dates for Winter 2019: Jan 12, Jan 19, Jan 26, Feb 2, Feb 9, Feb 23, Mar 2, Mar 16, Mar 23; 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
From January to March, the Robotics Club will focus on introducing the students to LEGO EV3 robotics. Students will work on robotics projects such as creating an all-terrain rover capable of climbing stairs, while using infrared sensor technology to find hidden items. They will also be programming robot gripping arms to transport objects!
***All activities below are in development and subject to change.***
Club Robotics – Spring
From April to June, the Robotics Club will focus on teaching the students Arduino programming and project construction. Students will work on robotics projects such as algorithmic maze solving robots and self-driving robot rovers.
Club Robotics – Summer
From July to August, the Robotics Club will focus on teaching students how to program a Raspberry Pi computer. They will learn about Android App Development and how to make their own apps. Students will work on projects such as creating automobile-like rovers and programming a smartphone remote control able to steer their rover with self-made Android applications.
Clubs Robotics – Fall
From October to December, the Robotics Club will focus on introducing the students to LEGO EV3 Robotics. Students will work a rover able to sort different coloured objects. Later, they will attach an automatic robotic arm that hits objects it senses in front of it.
*later cycles of the Winter session will be continuations of the fall session’s introduction to LEGO EV3 robotics.
