Spring 2019 Robots Classes Start March 11

This spring, Ms. Vogel will be offering two robotics classes on Mondays: Lego EV3 and Exploring Robotics mBot/MakerBot and Edison. Lego EV3 requires prior EV3 experience. Exploring Robotics is for students who are new to robotics. 

Class Details:

Lego EV3

Mondays, 3:15-4:30 in room 216.
4 sessions: April 22, 29; May 6, 20.
Some lunchtime sessions.
Requires prior Lego EV3 experience.

  • This class is for students with prior EV3 building experience. Students build on prior knowledge, learning more complex robot design, construction and programming. They will tinker with mechanical structure, motors, gears, power, sensors and much more, while learning engineering and math concepts such as mechanics, physics, design, and environmental science.

Exploring Robotics mBot/MakerBot and Edison

Mondays, 3:15-4:30 in room 216.
5 sessions: March 11, 18, 25; April 8, 22.
Available to all students, particularly those new to robotics.

  • This class is for students who have very little to no experience with robotics or programming. We learn Scratch style programming. These robots involve more programming than building.

Class sizes are limited, so if you are interested, turn in your application right away! Application deadline: Friday, March 8, 2019. Click or tap here for the application.

Classes are free, but a voluntary donation of $50-200 per student is politely requested.
