Learn about robotic technology, then design and build robots. Work with gears, sensors, blocks, panels, motors, axles, wheels, compressors, pneumatic parts, gearboxes, switches, lights, an electronic magnet, encoder motors, and a controller interface unit along with a power supply. Add sensors to enable your robot to run autonomously. Use the internationally-known, advanced Fischertechnik system, designed to challenge robotic engineers, as you code your programmable logic controllers to enable your robot to compete in the Robotics Challenge.
