High School Robotics Course

Program Information

The 2018-2019 Robotics, Programming and Simulation Courses/Research Projects are a great opportunity for area high school and middle school/early high school students to learn how to use advanced robotics tools and engineering concepts to create Artificial Intelligence applications. Twelve students from high schools in the area and twelve from middle school/early high school will be chosen to participate in the two courses that are held each year. This course is funded by a grant from Alcoa Foundation.

LEGO EV3 robotics kits will be used for the robotics portion of the program. Students will learn how to program autonomous robots using different software and Artificial Intelligence Programming.

Program Dates
