*If registering for ReCo Robots, and the afternoon session (Future Engineers) participants are welcome to have lunch with Rec Staff between classes and we will not require parents to sign out and back into the afternoon class.*
Build and take home your very own powerful robotic bulldozer and sleek handheld wireless controller! With your own colored manual and the aid of your instructor, you will each assemble your Robo Dozer that consists of over 40 different robotic parts that includes a speaker, circuit board, motors, LED lights, and much more. Learn the advantages and disadvantages of tracked vehicles as well as examples of robots with continuous tracks.
Use the controller to command your robot to move around in all directions, play sounds, and light up its cab roof lights! The special Code and Control wireless unit enables you to either directly control your Robo Dozer in real time, or write and save sequences of commands for the robot to perform at the push of a button. Once completed, you can try a few experiments with your new Code and Control Robo Dozer and compete with your fellow classmates!
The Recreation Department is not responsible for participants prior to the scheduled start of a program. We ask that caregivers stay with their children until attendance has been taken and the participant has been properly signed into the program with the instructor. Participants will be dismissed from the program to the caregiver promptly at conclusion. Caregivers must be physically present at dismissal. If you require any special accommodations related to dismissal, please communicate that with the Recreation Staff prior to the start of the program.
