New Robotics Curriculum

LHF’s robotics students have been able to learn from updated curriculum and materials. The Nebraska GEER Robotics Kit Grant supported STEM opportunities for schools. With it we were able to receive Pitsco arduino teaching sets for junior high and high school, two compete Tetrix Max robots to build and program, and a full robotics competition arena set. 8th graders have learned electronics basics and c++ programming basics with the Arduino Education Starter Kit.

High school Robotics has worked through the more advanced Arduino CTC Go! course, with more c++ logic, and built simple video games in 3rd quarter, and had been working with the engineering curriculum for the Tetrix Max robot 4th quarter. All these state of the art materials and curriculum were provided at no cost to our school, and Mrs. Lindgren shared a presentation at the NETA spring conference about our experience.
