What's Included

Robotics is an exciting and fast-growing field in which actuators, sensors and artificial intelligence are integrated to solve a myriad of problems. In this course, students will work in small teams to design and fabricate a robot to navigate a challenging obstacle course. Along the way, students will learn the science behind many types of actuators and sensors found in commercial robots and consumer electronics including range sensors, optical sensors and biosensors. The course will conclude with a final competition where students will integrate sensors and microcontrollers to autonomously navigate a maze challenge.

About This Organizer

The Engineering Student Outreach Office (ESOO), created in Fall 2009, manages and administers the core outreach programs offered by the Faculty. We act as the central unit for outreach activities promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education to a wide audience. We design and deliver programs centrally, and coordinate the activities by other entities including student organizations, Faculty members, and Departments. The vast majority of outreach activities supported by ESOO are pre-university programming.

The Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering is committed to inspiring youth within the community and across the world through outreach programming that focuses on engineering and applied sciences. These programs range from summer live-in programs to weekend courses during the fall and spring terms.
