          Students will work on real-world scientific challenges where robots are used instead of humans in situations of danger, dirty, or demoralizing activities.  Students progressively build their knowledge of engineering, computer programming, and robotics.  Students will learn how to build their own robot to best suit the challenge they face.  They will also use a graphical programming language called Robolab to program their robot to accomplish their missions. Building instructions and programming instructions are provided for those with little experience.  Experienced students are challenged to build their own robot and develop their own program to accomplish their mission.  Once students acquire a background with robotics, they will put their skills to the test in fun competitions with their robots.
