Mission Statement
 
The mission of the Robotics Academy is to inspire students to be science, technology, engineering, and math leaders by engaging them in hands-on activities that broaden their educational experience and meet future work force needs.
 
 
ROBOTICS I
Course Code: 5612
Grade Level: 9-10
Semesters: 2
Prerequisite: Algebra I
 
Robotics I is a preparatory course for Robotics II. This course deals with introductions to real-life applications of forces motion, basic trigonometric principals, structure and mechanical design, as well as basic electronics, motors, batteries and wiring. In addition, the course focuses heavily on teamwork and group dynamics.
 
 
ROBOTICS II
Course Code: 5612
Grade Level: 10-12
Semesters: 2
Prerequisite: Robotics I
 
The purpose of Robotics II is to build upon the mathematic and technical skills learned in Robotics I and apply them to the VEX platform, by competing in the worldwide VEX competition. Additionally, students are introduced to basic robot programming and participate in the VEX community through volunteer work.
 
 
ROBOTICS III
Course Code: 5612
Grade Level: 11-12
Semesters: 2
Prerequisite: Robotics II
 
The purpose of Robotics III is to build upon the mathematic and technical skills learned in Robotics I and II and apply them more effectively to the VEX platform by competing in the worldwide VEX competition. Additionally, students begin to teach other students how to program robots and participate in the VEX community.
 
 
ROBOTICS IV
Course Code: 5612
Grade Level: 12
Semesters: 2
Prerequisite: Robotics III
 
The purpose of Robotics IV is to build upon the mathematic and technical skills learned in Robotics I, II, and III and apply them more effectively to the VEX platform by competing in the world wide VEX competition. Additionally, students begin to teach other students how to program robots and participate in the VEX community.
 
 
 
 
This is a hands-on program which integrates science, technology, engineering and math. Students engage in inquiry-based investigations that teach lessons in designing, building and programming robots.  Students develop leadership, teamwork and project management skills that prepare them for the future work force. The robotics curriculum is based on the National Mathematics, Science and Technology standards. Requirements for enrollment include completion of Algebra I, strong writing skills, strong collaboration abilities, excellent attendance and work habits, and a willingness to learn and be engaged in the learning process. Students won the VEX World Championship title in 2009.
