Learn real-world robotics and engineering principles, and computer programming in a fun and interactive way! FIRST Tech Challenge robotics challenges students to use critical thinking skills to create robots which will accomplish specific tasks in fun, high action competitions between 4 robots. Robots will be built of metal parts, hardware, electronics, multiple motors, and innovative customized components students will create. Students will build their robots to be driven using game controllers and will also program them to run autonomously. Explore the exciting worlds of design, structure, construction, mechanical and electrical engineering, Java programming, creative problem solving and teamwork!
