STEM Robotics Foundations Lab 4×4

Introduce students to the foundations of robotics with easy-to-assemble and modify rovers that emphasize real-world applications. Working collaboratively using the Engineering Design Process, students build and program advanced robots to tackle impressive challenges. As they explore mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and programming, students also analyze the robot’s physics, mathematical and scientific elements.

Two lab options: 4×4 or 6×6

Each lab is one semester (90 hours of curriculum) with seven units, designed forĀ 3-5 students.

Foundations is the prerequisite to the Drones Lab + Curriculum.
