The Prometheus Academy - Robotics
Sharing the fire of learning
Robotics is a hands-on, lab-based course that introduces the basic concepts of robotics. Students focus on the construction and programming of robots. Course information is tied to lab experiments. Students work in groups to build and test increasingly more complex robots. At the end of each semester, students participate in a robot contest to see which design is the most robust and demonstrates good design. We are using a robotic design system as our platform; this eliminates the need to build parts from raw materials or the need to have access to a machine shop. Students are divided into groups to complete a variety of robot construction and programming activities.
In this course, students will:
