Robotics

"Hands-on experience is the best way to learn about all the interdisciplinary aspects of robotics."

- Rodney Brooks

 

Students assemble & program their robots

The Robotics courses teach principles of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) as students design, build and program their own robots. In the course of fulfilling their natural curiosity about robotics they will also learn skills like collaboration, problem-solving, and divergent thinking.
