6th Grade – Engineering
CO2 Dragsters and Drone Programming
Students will complete semester-long engineering design challenges rooted in scientific concepts, collaboration, inquiry, CAD design, and innovation to accomplish each challenge. During the first semester, students use CAD software and virtual analysis to design and analyze dragster prototypes. Throughout the second semester, students will investigate the concepts of energy transfer, electricity generation, and conservation of natural resources as they use the EDP process to meet the wind turbine design challenge.
7th Grade – Engineering
Drone Coding & Robotic Arms
Students will complete semester-long engineering design challenges while simultaneously exploring scientific concepts, collaboration, inquiry, coding, programming, CAD design, and innovation to accomplish each challenge. The first semester consists of a drone programming challenge involving programming for complex routes and completing hereditary challenges. Throughout the second semester, students will learn about body system interactions and use their programming skills to program a robotic arm to complete a game of Operation.
8th Grade – Tetrix Robotics
8th grade STARBASE 2.0 participants will design, construct and program various robot creations. If unique parts are needed OnShape CAD software will be used to design and 3D print custom pieces to complete the projects.
