Automation and Robotics (40005-70)
First, students identify the components of a robot and the types of industrial tasks that can be achieved more safely and easily through automation. Then, they write and execute programs for a robotic arm to perform both single and double operations.
Through other hands-on activities, students further explore the mechanics and functions of automation and robotics. They also learn how to program a series of commands for a robot to perform specific operations. Students also learn about advanced-education and career opportunities that are available for those with a strong interest in this area of technology.
