Oakmont Robotics Engineering
The project is to continue the expansion of robotics engineering at Oakmont. We are leaping from 4 robotics teams competing in previous challenges to 22 robotics teams this year and counting. The number of engineering courses for next year has doubled. Plain and simple, we do not have enough vex components to provision the amount of students involved in this endeavor.
The study of robotics, as it is set up at Oakmont, is not an after school activity, it is an essential part of the Technology Engineering Design curriculum. Robotics and Mechatronics is the weaving of math, science, technology and engineering into one amazing package. To be successful at a robotics endeavor, the machine that one witnesses on the court is the result of skills in critical thinking, problem solving, teamwork, and the application of their entire education.
