About JD Robotics

This course uses a lab-based approach to introduce basic robotics concepts. The class will work as a team to design fabricate and test-drive a one-of-a-kind fully functional robot which will be entered into the annual Utah Regional FIRST Robotics Competition held each March at the Maverick Center. This competition is comprised of over 48 robotics teams with about two-thirds of the teams from Utah high schools and one-third of the teams from various western states high schools. This course provided opportunity to participate in one of the most prestigious STEM Technology competitions held in the United States.
