HyCap Academy - Federal Way, 34704 11th Pl S # 202, Federal Way, WA, USA

PreRequisite: Students should be at least 10+ years old.

This class is for learning engineering concepts using lego EV3 to build robots. Students will learn principles of mechanical engineering and software engineering as they try and solve challenges every week.
The students will be divided into teams of 2-3 to work together on solving problems in a group setting.
The class will culminate in a sumobot competition where students will create a robot that will use sensors and motors to detect other objects and push them off of a playing field.

This class is for intermediate middle school and high school students that want to learn python. The course will be offered every month until the competition providing a variety of programming types and reviewing answers. We will be preparing for the Computer Science Teacher’s Association programming contest in late April. Students will apply what they have learned to practice solving new programming challenges as a team.
