Intro to Robotic Engineering is an intro-level course for robotics and programming. It will develop students’ computational, manufacturing, and critical thinking skills while showing them how to create, rather than simply use, new technologies. Students will learn basic computing and manufacturing skills, with the emphasis being on robotics and robot programming. This semester utilizes the C++ programming language, Fusion360 computer-aided design (CAD) software, and the Arduino robotic control system. Objectives and goals include mastery of the following skills: programming, prototyping, design, engineering, and manufacturing. Students will learn about the mathematics and algorithms that make computers and robots work, and be asked to demonstrate critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving skills in hands-on lab experiences.
Please note: you can technically use an online robot for free, but most students prefer to build a physical, real-world robot. Any costs for materials are the responsibility of the student or the student's school. An Arduino robot such as mBot or mBot Ranger is highly recommended.
