Robotics

SMbly Required high school robotics team was founded in 2015 to
provide students with the unique experience of working as an engineering
team to build a robot and compete at the world level.


Members of the team can be involved and gain experience in:

  • Business/marketing
  • Engineering, programming and manufacturing
  • Community outreach
Through FIRST robotics students gain:
  • Access to over $50 million in scholarships
  • Obtain real world engineering skills
  • Become part of an alumni network to aid them in the process of obtaining internships and careers in their future.
If participating with your teammates at events that are a combination sporting event, tech convention, NASCAR pit crew, business networking social, film festival, costume party and rock concert all rolled into one sounds fun to you, contact:

Mr. Jason Lawrence or stop by Room G117 after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:10 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. or Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. to check it out.

Elective Course Information

3522A Intro to Engineering & Robotics

Advanced Robotics Technology will explore the relations between science and technology. The program is designed to introduce students to basic and advanced concepts in robotics. Course information will be tied to lab experiments where students will work in teams to build and test complex VEX-based mobile robots. Included in this instruction will be the historical development of robotics as a field, the importance of integrating sensors, effectors and control, basic control, the key approaches to mobile robot control (reactive, behavior-based, and hybrid), and discussion of robot learning and multi-robot systems history.

Students will work in small teams to research, design, program, and construct robotic devices in competitions amongst each other and other schools in the area. Integrated throughout the course are career preparation standards which include basic academic skills, communicating individual and team ideas, interpersonal skills, problem solving abilities, safety, technology, and employment literacy.


Length of Course: Year
Open to Grades: 11, 12
(g) UC Approved
Prerequisites: Completion of Chemistry with no semester grade lower than B or completion of Chemistry Honors with no semester grade lower than C. Completion of Algebra 2 or Algebra 2 H with no semester grade lower than a B+. Completion of Geometry or Geometry H with no semester grade lower than a B+. Approval of Robotics Teacher.

3521A Advanced Robotics Technology

Advanced Robotics Technology will explore the relations between science and technology. The program is designed to introduce students to advanced concepts of programing and design in robotics. Course information will be tied to lab experiments where students will work in teams to build and test complex VEX-based mobile robots. Included in this instruction will be the autonomous programing of robotics, the importance of integrating sensors, effectors and control, basic control, the key approaches to mobile robot control (reactive, behavior-based, and hybrid) and discussion of robot learning and multi-robot systems history.

Students will work in small teams to research, design, program, and construct robotic devices in competitions amongst each other and other schools in the area. Integrated throughout the course are career preparation standards which include basic academic skills, communicating individual and team ideas, interpersonal skills, problem solving abilities, safety, technology, and employment literacy. Students in Advanced Robotics will be required to lead and mentor students in Robotics Technology.
