Canine Sharp ROBOTICS

 

8 Classes twice/month- 1st and 3rd Monday or Tuesday of the month

except the first September class.

Our goal with Canine Sharp Robotics is to have fun with robotics, experience engineering concepts, and learn about physics, science and math. The LEGO Robotics EV3 systems are provided during the Canine Robotics classes. Students will build machines, integrate motors and sensors, and develop software to control the robot. Each session will begin with a problem and some background information. Students will work in small groups to engineer a strategy and design a robot to meet the challenge. During classes, we will promote creativity, leadership, problem solving skills, process management, and technical learning. Youth of the robotics classes will be placed into 10-13yr. and 14-18yr. groups as well as beginner and advanced (having 1 or more semesters experience with the EV3 program). $200 (+$25 non refundable supply fee)

SCIENCE Courses

Participation options: 1) participating only in class, 2) doing some outside assigned work, or 3) all the assigned work for a grade and credit. A certificate of participation in class will be given to all students. My signature for credit and grade is only given for the third option. HS and MS students will have different textbooks and expectations. Students will engage in investigative labs and activities during most classes. Topics also include the management of natural resources and analysis of private and governmental decisions impacting life on earth. Students will learn that political and private decisions affect all life forms. Expectations: Students earning a grade are expected to work an average of 4-6 hr./ wk. to complete assigned work. Computers are needed to access and complete this work. Grades are comprised of participation, assignments, quizzes, projects, tests, papers, labs and a final exam.

This course will help students understand the relationship between humans and the world in which we live. This course surveys key topic areas including the application of scientific process to environmental analysis of ecology, energy flow, ecological structures, earth systems, and atmospheric, land, and water science. Topics also include the management of natural resources and analysis of private and governmental decisions involving the environment. Students explore actual case studies and conduct investigative studies. There are unit- long research activities. Students learn that political and private decisions about the environment and the use of resources require accurate application of scientific processes, including proper data collection, analysis, and responsible conclusions.
