Company: Education Unlimited
Location: Berkeley
Posted on: May 24, 2023

Job Description:

Education Unlimited - provides academic summer camps & pre-college summer programs for students entering grades 4-12. Our summer programs include public speaking camps, college admissions prep programs, science camps, summer acting camp, writing camps, computer camp, leadership camp, video production camp, and college tours.Course Description: -In Robotics, students will explore the emerging science of robot mechanics as they build and program their robot from scratch, remotely control it, experiment with light and pressure sensors, create drive trains for varying terrains, and play robotic sports.Students will use the new VEX5 robotics platform, the world's premier classroom robotics platform. We will begin by building a chassis - a stable structure to provide physical support and like a skeleton. - This chassis holds everything in place and is the building block from which other systems can be added. Next, we will mount motors to the chassis and add wheels and gears to complete the drive system so our robot can move as we learn about speed and torque. - We will conclude the week with a fully functioning robot that we have programmed to overcome obstacles and defeat challenges at our command. -

As we build and program our robots, we will explore electrical circuits and built power (batteries) as well as communications systems (radio controller) for our robots. As we employ design thinking we will learn about the engineering process to brainstorm, design, construct, test, and redesign as we used our robots to solve problems. Finally, we will enhance our robots with sensors, robotic arms, and programming as we test their capabilities in several early challenges, including terrain challenge and a transportation challenge! Our week will culminate in a finale presentation challenge of designing a robotics sports competition!VEX Robotics Camp Instructor -Available sessions: -Instructors may be hired for one session or for multiple sessions of this program.
