Robotics & Electronics
Nicolas Giannandrea, Instructor
Central High School, East Campus
This class is open to all students at Central High School. Student must be in 11th or 12th grade and/or at least 16 years old.
This course will introduce students to the fascinating and fun world of robotics, covering everything from simple toys to the complex logic and articulation of environmental sensing, recording and actuating devices, as well as automated design and manufacturing machines. Students will learn to design, build, and program a device that responds to external information to perform a set of particular tasks. This highly complex area of student involves understanding how electronics, electrical, pneumatic, and computer systems can be used to control robots which receive information from sensors and programmable inputs to go through a set of motions that are purposeful for its designed functions.
All ROP teachers are required to maintain a list of advisors. These advisors are community members that work in fields related to their class, and help to advise them of current trends in the industry.
