Cadette Robotics Badge I, II & III

Registration due May 23, 2020

Date: June 6, 2020

Time: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Location:  GSCNC Brighton Woods or Frederick, MD

Cost:  $35.00

 

Location information available 3.6.2020.

 

Cadettes can come to a fun filled day learning about robotics.   We’ll complete the requirements for all three badges in the set during a one day program, pizza lunch will be provided for attendees.

 

Robotics I—Programming Robots

Robots are machines that can detect what’s going on around them and use that information to decide how they’ll interact with the physical world. To help you understand how robots work, learn about the parts that make up a robot. Get started with electronics by making a simple sensor, something robots use to function without human operators. Then practice coding robots using important programming concepts like functions and loops.

 

Robotics II—Designing Robots

Researchers often build robot prototypes from materials that are cheap and easy to find. They may include crafts materials, like paper and cardboard, and household materials, like rubber balloons. For this badge, come up with ideas and build a prototype of a new kind of robot that could help someone to overcome a daily obstacle.

 

Robotics III—Showcasing Robots

After engineers build a working version of their robots, they release them to the public. They may enter them into challenges and competitions or market them through a website or crowd-funding campaign. Now that you’ve built your robot prototype, it’s time to share your design with others and explore a future in robotics.
