Automation and Robotics 

This is a Project Lead the Way course where students research the different uses and functions for robots in the world today before exploring basic gear builds using VEX building parts.  There are eleven basic gear builds they are asked to build and answer questions concerning before they are asked to design and build more complex structures that involves multiple gears interacting with each other.   Lastly, we add in the coding part, wiring different motors and sensors into a cortex and learn how to program those pieces to achieve certain gains.
