PPCA Introduction to Robotic Design
Introduction to Robotic Design is being offered to PPCA students this year! It is an elective science course that grew from a focused on independent research. Students will spend the first semester learning how to use AutoCAD, 3-D CAD (computer aided design) software, to design new items. They will learn to use a 3-D printer to bring their designs into reality. In the second semester, students will have the option to further their design experience or transition into introductory Robotic design. Robotic Design will primarily consist of identifying hardware and electronic components and their functions, as well as designing software to control robotic systems - as well as building and designing robots!
