This is the course outline for the Mechatronics and Competitive Engineering curriculum developed by Allison Kneisler for FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 3538 - the RoboJackets.
This outlines the lessons that we teach our team members as part of our effort to become a world-class FRC team.
This is the 2017-2018 version, current as of August 2017.
Other course materials in development include...
-- An overview document with big ideas, essential questions, content areas, and learning targets (knowledge, skills, reasoning, and products) for each lesson.
-- An administrative guide that outlines the required, recommended, and optional resources (equipment, facilities, human, financial, etc.) that we utilize in our implementation
-- A slide presentation, video, booklet, and workbook pages for each lesson
-- Kahoot! quizzes for selected lessons
-- A student and instructor activity guide with ideas for hands-on exercises that reinforce each lesson
-- An achievement badge and assessment system to track student progress and gamify learning
-- Posters and other large print reference materials that reinforce key concepts
