6:00 PM - 8:00 PM    WaterBotics - WaterBotics - Junior Engineer-Session A - Mission Rescue
Do you think you would have fun designing, and controlling a robot to function underwater? Do you ever wonder if you could tinker and tweak something to create or improve how it works?Then you might want to check-out WaterBotics®! Different from many land-based robotics programs, WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotic program where teams collaborate to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made with LEGO® and other components.Teams use LEGO® materials that are familiar, have ease of use and durability, come in a variety of pieces, and are tweak friendly. Teams will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP); a format that engineers use to make life easier by creating and improving how things work. Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer (Sessions A & B)Apprentice Session A - Mission 1: Rescue! Use a single motor to build a robot that can travel in a straight line—both forward and backward—on the surface of the water and save a drowning swimmer. Optimize gearing to improve speed and/or control. (Pre-requisite completion Session A) Session B - Mission 2: Cleanup! Use a second motor to enable steering and two-dimensional movement. Maneuver the robot on the surface of the water to clean up a spill of hazardous pollutants.  Senior Engineer (Sessions C & D)Intermediate (Pre-requisite completion Sessions A & B)Session C - Mission 3: Sweep! Use a third motor to dive under the water. Combine high-density and low-density materials to achieve good buoyancy and stability, making the robot controllable underwater. Detonate or disable underwater “mines” to make a shipping lane safe. (Pre-requisite completion Sessions A - C)Session D - Mission 4: Collect! Combine the products of previous missions to produce a vehicle that can collect samples from a sunken ship and deposit them in various underwater collection bins. A fourth motor may be used to create a mechanism to grab and release the balls.  Head EngineerIndependent Explorers (Pre-requisite completion Sessions A - D)Independent Exploration! With the purchase of the WaterBotics® ROV Kit, students design and build robots independently. Optional purchase of WaterBotics® ROV Kits available the first day Session D.

Do you think you would have fun designing, and controlling a robot to function underwater? Do you ever wonder if you could tinker and tweak something to create or improve how it works?Then you might want to check-out WaterBotics®! Different from many land-based robotics programs, WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotic program where teams collaborate to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made with LEGO® and other components.Teams use LEGO® materials that are familiar, have ease of use and durability, come in a variety of pieces, and are tweak friendly. Teams will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP); a format that engineers use to make life easier by creating and improving how things work. Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer (Sessions A & B)Apprentice Session A - Mission 1: Rescue!

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM    WaterBotics - WaterBotics - Junior Engineer-Session A - Mission Rescue
Do you think you would have fun designing, and controlling a robot to function underwater? Do you ever wonder if you could tinker and tweak something to create or improve how it works?Then you might want to check-out WaterBotics®! Different from many land-based robotics programs, WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotic program where teams collaborate to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made with LEGO® and other components.Teams use LEGO® materials that are familiar, have ease of use and durability, come in a variety of pieces, and are tweak friendly. Teams will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP); a format that engineers use to make life easier by creating and improving how things work. Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer (Sessions A & B)Apprentice Session A - Mission 1: Rescue! Use a single motor to build a robot that can travel in a straight line—both forward and backward—on the surface of the water and save a drowning swimmer. Optimize gearing to improve speed and/or control. (Pre-requisite completion Session A) Session B - Mission 2: Cleanup! Use a second motor to enable steering and two-dimensional movement. Maneuver the robot on the surface of the water to clean up a spill of hazardous pollutants.  Senior Engineer (Sessions C & D)Intermediate (Pre-requisite completion Sessions A & B)Session C - Mission 3: Sweep! Use a third motor to dive under the water. Combine high-density and low-density materials to achieve good buoyancy and stability, making the robot controllable underwater. Detonate or disable underwater “mines” to make a shipping lane safe. (Pre-requisite completion Sessions A - C)Session D - Mission 4: Collect! Combine the products of previous missions to produce a vehicle that can collect samples from a sunken ship and deposit them in various underwater collection bins. A fourth motor may be used to create a mechanism to grab and release the balls.  Head EngineerIndependent Explorers (Pre-requisite completion Sessions A - D)Independent Exploration! With the purchase of the WaterBotics® ROV Kit, students design and build robots independently. Optional purchase of WaterBotics® ROV Kits available the first day Session D. One WaterBotics® ROV Kit per registrant. This is a fun instructional program that directly exposes kids to science and engineering standards required in most school systems that can take 180 days of a school year of textbooks, papers, and tests. WaterBotics® is a proven outlet that helps support the learning of standards by teaching and incorporating science and engineering in a way that is unique, hands-on and most of all fun. For more information visit our website at s3stem.com.Instructors: Leslie Davis-Green/Lee Green/1 Junior InstructorLeslie Davis-Green, has over 12 years of teaching in the public and private sector.

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM    WaterBotics - WaterBotics - Junior Engineer-Session A - Mission Rescue
Do you think you would have fun designing, and controlling a robot to function underwater? Do you ever wonder if you could tinker and tweak something to create or improve how it works?Then you might want to check-out WaterBotics®! Different from many land-based robotics programs, WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotic program where teams collaborate to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made with LEGO® and other components.Teams use LEGO® materials that are familiar, have ease of use and durability, come in a variety of pieces, and are tweak friendly. Teams will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP); a format that engineers use to make life easier by creating and improving how things work. Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer (Sessions A & B)Apprentice Session A - Mission 1: Rescue! Use a single motor to build a robot that can travel in a straight line—both forward and backward—on the surface of the water and save a drowning swimmer. Optimize gearing to improve speed and/or control. (Pre-requisite completion Session A) Session B - Mission 2: Cleanup! Use a second motor to enable steering and two-dimensional movement. Maneuver the robot on the surface of the water to clean up a spill of hazardous pollutants.  Senior Engineer (Sessions C & D)Intermediate (Pre-requisite completion Sessions A & B)Session C - Mission 3: Sweep! Use a third motor to dive under the water. Combine high-density and low-density materials to achieve good buoyancy and stability, making the robot controllable underwater. Detonate or disable underwater “mines” to make a shipping lane safe. (Pre-requisite completion Sessions A - C)Session D - Mission 4: Collect! Combine the products of previous missions to produce a vehicle that can collect samples from a sunken ship and deposit them in various underwater collection bins. A fourth motor may be used to create a mechanism to grab and release the balls.  Head EngineerIndependent Explorers (Pre-requisite completion Sessions A - D)Independent Exploration! With the purchase of the WaterBotics® ROV Kit, students design and build robots independently. Optional purchase of WaterBotics® ROV Kits available the first day Session D. One WaterBotics® ROV Kit per registrant. This is a fun instructional program that directly exposes kids to science and engineering standards required in most school systems that can take 180 days of a school year of textbooks, papers, and tests. WaterBotics® is a proven outlet that helps support the learning of standards by teaching and incorporating science and engineering in a way that is unique, hands-on and most of all fun. For more information visit our website at s3stem.com.Instructors: Leslie Davis-Green/Lee Green/1 Junior InstructorLeslie Davis-Green, has over 12 years of teaching in the public and private sector.
