In today’s world there is a big demand for people to learn programming. This class introduces young engineers to programming that takes place in an authentic learning environment. The physical robot responds to the programmer’s commands and each student is provided with automatic feedback to help them master their programming skills. EV3 language is designed for novice programmers and uses a simple block programming language. Advanced students may want to utilize a more sophisticated code and program using RobotC languages depending on their interest and academic readiness. All students can begin somewhere. This class allows students to choose from an array of available methods to solve an assortment of exciting robotic challenges.

Sumo-Bot Fun & Soccer-Bot Fun (World Cup Inspired: Picture at Bottom).
1)Robotics can include “fierce” competition. We are lucky kids form strong friendships and have learned the importance of fair play and good sportsmanship. If this were not the case, Mr. A would need security in his robotics camp. Of course the campers are not engaging in hand to hand combat. Instead they are using robots built from Lego components, particularly the Lego Mindstorms sets. The combative event is actually a world-renowned engineering clash that mimics the ancient art of Japanese Sumo.
In our variation of Sumo-Bot Competition, each robot must have met particular weight and size requirements prior to the official matches. Robots start on opposite sides of a white rectangular “Sumo” board or a rectangular space boardered by tape and prepare for a vicious showdown. Each team robot attempts to push the other team’s robot off the playing surface. After the battle, only one robot remains. After a few adjustments, the battle tested foes are much improved and ready to fight again. Below are some clips from this year’s competitions.
2) The children have fashioned many designs for their Soccer-Bots. They were inspired by Brazil World Cup and now are inspired by Brazil Olympics
