One Week Workshop.
Open-ended Theme-based Projects — Grade 4 to 6
Inspired by the DARPA Grand Challenge, we bring that technical learning to the students in conceptual level with the main challenges encountered in unmanned vehicle technology. DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) Grand Challenge
once was the pathbreaking effort with the goal of accelerating the development of autonomous vehicle technologies.
Build and program an unmanned vehicle
that will race on a treacherous terrain, uphill, through speed bumps, dark
tunnels, and more. Students will build a robot from scratch and program it
to make the vehicle come alive, offering truly rewarding fun. You will learn
to handle some mechanics difficulties and computer programming issues that
even advanced users with industrial-level machines and software encounter.
Learn how the formation of gears systems affect speed and torque of your
robotics system by using the application of math concepts. This challenge
provides plenty of creative time and opportunities to hone analysis skills
and critical thinking.
