8th GTT: Automation and Robotics

   Eight grade Gateway To Technology is a course introducing students to the importance of robotics and computer programming in todays society. The course will be broken int three parts: What is robotics and automation?, Mechanisms, and Computer Programming. First, we will look at what robotics means and what we use robotics for today. Then we will move into different types of mechanisms like gear ratios, gears, and linear motion using the VEX robotic system. Finally, we will apply the mechanisms investigated previously to solve problems using the computer programing software called RobotC.
