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.
Fall Robotics Club – Lego EV3
Dates for Fall 2019: Oct 19, Oct 26, Nov 2, Nov 9, Nov 16, Nov 23, Nov 30, Dec 7, Dec 14; 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
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.
Winter Robotics Club – Lego EV3 – Completed
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!
Spring Robotics Club – Arduino – Completed
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.
Summer Robotics Club – Raspberry Pi – Completed
From July to August, the Robotics Club will focus on teaching students how to program a Raspberry Pi computer. They learned 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.
