    Robotics Technology Course @ JHS Overview


    Through step-by-step activities covering robot assembly and programming, students learn to build and program a competitive robot for both autonomous and operator control. Activities enable students to quickly understand and apply the concepts many students struggle with, like encoders, ultrasonic, line followers and PID control.

    Robotics Technology @ JHS includes
    step by step instructions delivered in an accessible self-paced online format.
    interactive simulations and animations of assembly and programming procedures.
    links to launch RobotC® software* directly
    from the content.

    Robotics Technology @ JHS brings the benefits of the VEX Cortex microcontroller and RobotC® for Cortex robotic programming software to help more students become exposed to robotics, competitions and engineering! In addition Carnegie Melon’s Virtual Worlds will be utilized to assist students in the learning of RobotC.  Students will complete multiple challenges in virtual world environment prior to loading code on the robots and running them in both autonomous and remote control mode.

    Featuring the VEX Cortex Microcontroller

    The VEX Cortex Microcontroller coordinates the flow of all information and power on the robot. It has built in bi-directional communication for wireless driving, debugging and downloading using the state of the art VEXnet 802.11 wireless link. The Microcontroller is the brain of every VEX robot.
