Course Description

From the CTY Course Catalog: In the field of robotics, computer science and engineering interface to create interdependent systems that can perform a variety of tasks, from manufacturing microchips to exploring Mars. In this course, we’ll learn computer science concepts and explore topics such as algorithms, sequential control flow, and Boolean operators. We’ll survey basic principles of physics and mechanical engineering, such as simple machines and locomotion, and of electrical engineering, such as circuits and sensor feedback. You and your classmates will build, program, and test robots in a modern programming environment. With each project, learn the basic computer science and engineering principles that underlie everything from home toasters to space shuttles, and gain a foundation in fields that will become increasingly important in the highly technical 21st century.
