Robotics

I hope to be able to offer diverse robotics projects throughout the year that are appropriate for all students and introduce them to skills in basic electronics and robotics to go along with their programming skills. These skills can help them to better unserstand the technology they use on a daily basis and give them skills that can be used for a possible carreer later in life. Some of these projects are simple and only require inexpensive items that can be purchased locally, others will require more expensive of complex items. I am working on writing for grant money and crowd funding options in order to be able to have the supplies for these more advanced projects. If you would like to help support our classroom in these or other indevors, please see our Wish List tab.
