Tutor's Name: Tina

Class Description: Friends in the Making: Crafting a Custom Robotic Sidekick in 8 Weeks

Without a doubt, the influence of robots on our future is undeniable. Have you ever wondered what it takes to make a robot? In the last couple of years, I’ve had the joy of working with mentors on a FIRST Robotics team and a hand in their journey to bring not just one, but two robots, DUP - Dancing Under Pressure and Cubert to various competitions. Watch Behind the Bot – Inside a High School Robotics Season which aired on Goffstown Public Television, Channel 16 recently here: https://youtu.be/YqqLFs5rGIA?si=Tx-9mTHGywUCBpGz

 We will cover:

  • What is FIRST Robotics

  • Computer Aided Design (CAD)

  • 3D Printing

  • Material Fabrication

  • Software Programming

  • Electrical Wiring

  • Testing and Refining

  • Driving and Operating a Robot

  • Creative Marketing

  • How YOU can participate

No previous experience is needed!

We won’t wrap up the class with a completed robot, but if you’re finding the experience enjoyable and wish to continue with a full build season, we’ll be wrapping up just in time for the 2025 FIRST Robotics Competition!
