Robotics Design: Manipulators
5 Weeks: October 29 November 5, 12, 19 December 10 (No class November 26, December 3)
Location: Jewish Community Center of Mission Viejo (JJC)
In small group teams, kids will use VEX IQ pieces to add on an arm and claw to their chassis, a 4-bar linkage, and designs for object propulsion. Focus will be on the engineering design process: thinking, creating, testing, and recording the results with a new challenge every week or two including Demolition Derby, High Rise and Sumo Bots. In addition to robotics and engineering design skills, the weekly challenges offer moments for leadership, creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.
Outside Classwork: None
