The FIRST Robotics Competitions have been going on for about 15 years now! Our Robotics club is entering its third year of participating in the competitions! It is a global competition where participants from several countries collaboratively work to design and engineer a robot to use to solve a problem (i.e., navigate a course, deploy and retrieve artifacts, etc.). Approximately 200 - 400 students (including schools/teams that participate remotely) compete from grades 7 - 12, from a variety of schooling programs (ex., public schools, private schools, and home school students). The students spend several months before the event designing, and building their robot ROV (remotely operated vehicle) and completing an associated research project that connects engineering and robotics through keeping a journal of their work. The students then display and present their research to the judges during the competition. Hence the competition has two parts: the building and operating of the robot, and doing research and presenting their work and findings. This year, we hope to learn and develop 3D printing skills by utilizing a 3D printer to create parts and components that will contribute in the construction of our robot. During the events, students will compete with their previously designed and engineered robot ROV, and accomplish various tasks such as picking up, setting down, or tossing plastic rings into several goals. Students will learn the engineering design process (EDP) about mechanics such as engineering, electric circuitry, power and motors, programming, and much more.
