Technology Skills

Gain skills with computers and accessing digital resources.

VR Robotics 100 will teach students the fundamentals of Scratch, an introductory coding language for younger children, and its applications to robotics. Students will learn about fundamental scratch concepts during the first couple sessions, and then transition to using skills learned to robotics. The core of a rover will be covered and a rover's “anatomy” such as a sensor, a magnet detector, and more. By the end of this course, students should be comfortable designing their own basic algorithm in scratch and be able to solve beginner level problems on robotics.
