Hello! Welcome to the Apera Robotics Course. This course is designed to take any student with varying degrees of experience in robotics from beginner to advanced robotics skills. While this course can be used for general robotics knowledge but some content in the course will be targeted towards skills that would be used in competitive robotics like FLL.
Competitive Robotics is becoming increasingly more popular as technology takes a forefront in this generation. This course is meant for students who are ready to learn robotics or take steps to make their team more competitive. Included in the course are skills that will be very beneficial on any robotics team as well as FLL specific challenges that will help you build your knowledge and problem solving skills.
In this course we will also explain the competitive robotics pipeline and include additional challenges for students to build their confidence.
In this course we will cover:
Unit 1: An Introduction to Robotics and Ev3
Unit 2: Designing and Building your Ev3 Robot
Unit 3: Coding your Ev3 Robot
Unit 4: Exploring Sensors, Attachments and Actuators
Unit 5: Basic Challenges and Core FLL Skills
Unit 6: Advanced FLL Challenges and FLL tips and strategies
Who this course is for:
- Students in grades 3-6, eager to learn about robotics in general or apart of a competitive robotics team competing in FLL.
My name is Anuj and I am a Junior at Eastlake High School. I've been doing competitive Robotics since 3rd grade. I've done JrFLL, Was the Captain of both an FLL (FIRST Lego League) and FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) Team, and now am the Business Lead and Drive Team Captain of FRC (FIRST Robotics Challenge) Sushi Squad.
I've been teaching robotics for over 3 years with numerous organizations impacting over 100 students and over 350 hours teaching. I have also mentored 2 FLL teams throughout my time teaching.
