This class will operate out of High Technology High School located in Lincroft, NJ. Mr. Hanas will be teaching the course assisted by his team of TAs who are not only HTHS students but also members of the school’s competitive VEX teams and Robotics and Coding club.
What's going to happen?
Day 1: You will be introduced to the MIT Scratch programming language, which, will be used to cover basic coding concepts such as variables, loops, lists and will even allow you to animate graphics!
Day 2 - Day 3: Introduction to the VEX Robotics System. During this two-day overview of robotics, you will use the coding concepts learned on Day 1 to control a VEX robot that you will build in class! You will program the robot using a language called RobotC and at the conclusion of this unit will engage in a mini-competition.
Day 4: You will learn how to control an Arduino prototyping board with coding. This will include the fundamentals of building a circuit with a breadboard and how to control various components such as diodes and sensors.
Day 5: This will be a capstone day where you will expand upon a topic of your choice (Scratch, VEX, Arduino) in order to develop a coding and/or robotics creation of your own!
