Advanced Robotics is a semester-long class that meets during the regular school schedule in the fall. Students work in groups to master all the necessary disciplines that are utilized, including pneumatics, electronics, drive train mechanics, motors/gears, wiring, safety, and programming. This course will be directly connected with the robotics team as it competes in the FIRST robotics competition at the FRC level. Students who continue for the spring semester utilize class time as an opportunity to refine the work on the FTC robot built in the fall, continue to work on FTC awards submissions, and work on the administrative aspects and award aspects of the FRC build season.
