Project Description

i(<3)Robot

i(<3)Robot is Eugene Sudbury’s all girls Robotics Camp. Girls get to practice their engineering, math, physics, and programming skills by building robots and successfully programming them to complete objectives. i(<3)Robots is a 1 week long course intended for those with beginner to intermediate experience with ev3 robotics. This course is open to anyone who identifies as a girl in a way that is significant to them.

Engineering

Build different robots throughout the course using different sensors and program the robots interact with the world around them.

Estimation and Math

Using physics and estimation, students will be able to program their robots to complete advanced challenges.

Control Robots Remotely

Students get the opportunity to remotely control robots in a disaster relief challenge and obstacle courses.

Current Technology

We will take a look at the current robotics trends, how retail and commercial robots operate and where the market is headed.

Learning Outcomes

Sudbury’s Mindstorms camp is designed to teach our students engineering, technology, and teamwork skills through building and programming robots. Using geometry and beginning to intermediate programming skills (with guided support from enthusiastic staff) students will have fun designing their robot to complete challenging tasks. We will also complete a series of challenges where robots are remote controlled! Our camp will also cover real world applications of the technology students are using and the latest research as well as advancements in the marketplace.

  • Design and build programmable robots using motors, sensors, gears, wheels, axles, and other technical components
  • Understand and interpret two-dimensional drawings to create three-dimensional models
  • Build, test, troubleshoot and revise designs to improve robot performance
  • Gain practical, hands-on experience using mathematical concepts such as estimating and measuring distance, time, speed
