Course Description:
Course # -
This course spans an entire school year with weekly meetings for planning and strategizing
for the spring competition for FIRST Robotics (FC) and the fall First Tech Challenge robotics
(FTC) competition. The build season for FTC and FC entails six weeks of daily meetings
which often include weekend sessions to develop both a robot to meet current year game
guidelines and the development of team components such as: promotion, travel, fund raising,
programming, graphic design, team strategy, and community outreach. The program and
course allow students to participate for all four years of high school, allowing students to
protract into ever increasing levels of maturity and responsibility as they participate yearly.

                                                   Vision
St. Louis Public Schools is the district of choice for families in the St. Louis region that provides a world
class education and is nationally recognized as a leader in student achievement and teacher quality.
                                                  Mission
We will provide a quality education for all students and enable them to realize their full intellectual
potential.
                                               Core Beliefs
All children can learn, regardless of their socioeconomic status, race, or gender. The African American
Achievement Gap can be eliminated. Parents must be included in the education process. Competent,
caring, properly supported teachers are essential to student learning. The community must be involved in
encouraging high achievement for all children. The St. Louis Public Schools are obligated to help students
overcome any obstacles that may hinder their learning by forming partnerships with the entire community.

              Career and Technical Rationale
Society needs workers who are technologically literate, able to function independently
but work as a team, competent writers and thinkers and effective problem solvers.

Career and technical education courses offered in high demand areas include:

    Business Management & Technology               Health Services
    Industrial & Engineering Technology            Human Services
    Natural Resources Agriculture                  Arts & Communications

Through well-defined competencies, experienced educators and the guidance from an
advisory committee, students gain skills in leadership, analyzing, organizing, writing,
ethical applications, human relations, interpersonal communications. All skills needed to
progress to entry-level employment and/or post-secondary training.

Upon completion, many will receive certification in a specific technical area and will be
ready for work, an apprenticeship or additional post-secondary training.

                               Course Rationale
Employers throughout the country are looking for workers who can work as a team and solve
problems for their companies. This course organizes students into working teams according to
their aptitude and develops their abilities and skills through experimentation and guided help
through mentors, coaches and returning team members.
Students work on a specific and punitive time table, where all is accomplished by the given date
or all is lost, just as it is expected and mandated in industry.
As students develop banners, t-shirts, handouts, team buttons and other promotional items, they
learn to act as a community and develop a team sense of pride when they appear ready at the
competition and possibly become the team with giveaways everyone wants. This can translate
into numerous careers in industry and develops skills greatly needed in industry for skilled “team”
workers.
The robotics building part of the course/competition develops keen skills that will transfer to
numerous future careers such as: PLC operators, programmers, robotics engineers,
engineering, electronics technicians, schematics designers, CAD operators/designers or
industrial manufacturing careers.
Finally, the course/program encourages close association with mentors tied to skills associated
with engineering/robotics/electronics. This course offers students unparalleled opportunity to
work closely with adults already in industry and develop contacts and friendships that will
inevitably be of great value in years to come, if they decide to move into fields associated with
the robotics program.

• Students downloaded all files for the rules manual for the current robotics season and
  divided the team into 2-3 working groups, read and understood the game and brainstormed
  about possible solutions.
• Students appointed team members from their group and gave a presentation, which
  included, CAD drawings, diagrams, and thorough explanations of reasoning, to the whole
  team on their robot design and game strategy, and sold why it was the best idea.
• Students chose the best idea and strategy and began development of if/then strategies
  that may occur during the game and began development of sketches & CAD drawings to
  enable development of a prototype design that enabled production within a week or less.
• Students developed a scouting team who developed a system and checklist to use when
  scouting at the competition that enables the team to have accurate information for making
  choices if selected for the semi-finals and to prepare for all matches.

                         Internships & Articulations
Contact local companies involved with electronics, computers, programming, graphic
design, travel, CAD, publicity, news, engineering, etc. and make arrangements for students to
shadow or take part in an internship either paid or unpaid where they might expand their
chosen area to work on the team.
 Contact local colleges or colleges with programs associated with skills within the FIRST
robotics program and see if college credit for work done can be obtained. It may take some
tweaking or additions as colleges often want about 80% of work done for their courses in your
program. Be sure to supply them with this guide so they can see what may work.
 Work with vendors, mentors and support adults to see if they have opportunities in their
companies for students to work, work as interns or spend one or more days job shadowing.
 Keep a current list of scholarships available through the FIRST web site of all colleges
submitting possible scholarship funds so students can contact and apply.
 Adapt Internship Competencies to fit location student is placed, and use for both yourself
and the company supervisor to evaluate the student if a grade is given for the internship.
