机器人

When students build robots, robots build 蒸汽-loving students. Just ask any member of FIRST® 机器人 Team 1939, which has qualified for six  World Championships and won dozens of awards since 2006. But robotics at Barstow is about much more than  competition.
It’s about leadership, sportsmanship and service to the community. Team 1939 members build competition robots  — and routinely win top awards for their efforts —  but they also use their STEM skills to serve others.  In classrooms and clubs,  robotics students learn mechanical and electrical engineering, 设计思考, 工具使用, 原型设计, wiring and programming. They become innovators and confident thinkers as they solve problems and refine their work. And they transform lives through community service.

Program with a Purpose

服务 & 领导
服务 and leadership are hallmarks of the Barstow robotics program. Team 1939 members are leaders of Go Baby Go, a program that adapts ride-on cars as mobility vehicles for children with disabilities. Working with Variety Children’s Charity of Greater Kansas City, Barstow hosts an annual Go Baby Go community build with regional robotics teams, and our students have provided 80 families with vehicles since 2015. Team 1939 also created an instructional manual and global online forum so other chapters can follow Barstow’s lead.

竞争
The FIRST 机器人 competition season begins in January and builds toward World Championships in April. Under strict rules with limited time and resources, students are challenged to build industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game in alliance with other teams. Our students learn the value of teamwork and sportsmanship as they compete in the “sport of the mind,” traveling to regional tournaments and compete at World Championships.

机器人课程

2项清单.

  • 中间 School VEX 机器人

    Students learn to build robots—and character. They work in small teams to build, modify and program VEX robots to complete challenges and compete against each other. They also learn to work under the pressure of competition in a fun, supportive environment.
  • 上学校 Engineering Design & 机器人

    Project-based courses focus on the engineering design process. Students work as a team to design entries for the KU High School Design 竞争. The course also provides instruction in mechanical and electrical engineering, 工具使用, arduino, wiring and mechanisms for robots. The honors level course includes more rigorous grading guidelines and advanced coursework.
