Robotics Opportunities at TIS
At TIS we strive to build a solid foundation in critical thinking and problem solving. Our robotics program is an important part of this endeavor. Students are able to demonstrate their ability to use the engineering design process to think through the problem (Ideate), come to a solution (Implement), and try out their solution (Test). See what this looks like in each grade level!
In the elementary this looks like learning the basics of building simple structures, and using drag and drop code to move the robots. Robotics is integrated in the classroom and available through extr-curricular clubs.
In Middle School the structures become more complex, and some written code is mixed with the drag and drop interface. Robotics is available to middle school students during after-school clubs.
In High School robotics the structures need to be further designed and built using aluminum construction and the code is written in a C based language. High school students can pursue robotics through student-led clubs.
