|Develop a sense of design engineering by making robots in a CAD environment.|
|Use high level programming to communicate with the robot. Learn RobotC which is the foundation of all serious programming. This is first year university level programming.|
Engineering Learning: Students will learn the whole design process from design, to build; to test and finally improve. The students will learn a huge range of mechanical and control skills.
Programming Learning: Students will learn how to control robots with multi-sensors and create a robot capable of doing a huge range of tasks. The students will have a chance to program in RobotC; a high level language taught at university. They will also use CAD design and simulation packages to assess their designs before building.
Age suitability: 12 to 18 years
Cost per student: £97.50 per student
This course gives the student the Level 3 certificate in robotics. It also gives the students the ability to gain a Crest Award
