Infrared Detectors Drive Trains
Gear Ratios
Speed vs. Torque
Levers and Pulleys
Sprocket and Chain Drives Calibration
Linear Equations
Line Fitting Ways to teach with Robots Design
Challenges Competitions Students go head to head Challenge Given (Requirements) Students develop alternatives (Design) Students pick best alternative (Trade-Offs) Students build robot (Build) Students test and refine (Test) Robot kits from Vex Robotics Think "Erector Set on Steroids" Includes motors, on-board computer,
radio control and much more What makes robots so cool? Robots are fun! Students connect concepts Students apply math and science Students get immediate feedback Students are hands-on with the robots Students learn to work in teams Students are active Why engineering in High School? Help students make informed decisions
about their future education and careers Students use the engineering Process
