Electronics and Robotics

Electronics and Robotics will be the primary focus of every course under this heading.  Students learn to build robots to solve basic and complex everyday problems.  Additional topics covered will include computer hardware and software architecture, troubleshooting simple and complex computer problems, as well as introduction to computer networking technology.

ADST – Electronics and Robotics 9 / Electronics and Robotics 10

Students will continue to build more robots and learn more about the use of the VEX-IQ robotics platform to solve various engineering design challenges. Through the use of ‘game play’ students will learn to work together in design teams to formulate and build robots that will solve various technical challenge.  Students will also learn various computer skills needed to be successful in high school and beyond.

(Additional ‘Out of Class Time’ will be available to help students to complete and demonstrate their Robotics learning.  This will include participating various robotics competitions and events.  Student not wishing to choose these optional opportunities will have limited class time to complete and demonstrate their Robotics learning.)

Robotics 11 / Robotics 12

Robotics 11 and Robotics 12 is a continuation from ADST – Electronics and Robotics 9/10. Students in this course will have the opportunity to construct robots and participate in Competitive and non-competitive robotics challenges. We will be using the VEX-IQ and VEX-EDR robotics platforms to construct robots to solve technical and scientific challenges. This is a fun course intended for students wanting to explore the world of electronics and robotics.
