Tech.Ed – Electronics / Engineering / Robotics

Create, Build, and Amaze. Do you want to change the world? Are you imaginative or innovative? Do you want to work with technology? Do you want to build robots, design code, or work in engineering teams? In the following courses, you will design, build, and program robots and take on engineering or electronics projects.
Would you like to compete at the world level?

Then Gladstone has a great opportunity for you! This is because the world-renowned Robosavages are our school’s VEX Robotics competitive team.  They compete at regional VEX Robotics competitions that may lead to participation in a world championship.  Gladstone has finished in the top ten teams 5 times in the last 6 years, competing against over 10,000 teams around the world. This is a great chance for students to discover career options in engineering or other technical fields. Just join one of the classes in this area.

Electronics 9/10

This course is open to students in grades 9 and 10.

This is an introductory course for students who want to explore the world of electronics, computers and/or engineering. Students will learn basic techniques to help with the building of various projects. Projects vary year to year but usually include several take home projects including a small robot.

Electronics 11

This course will teach the basics of electronic circuits and design.  Students will work on a common project for the first part of the course.  After that assignments may be chosen from various engineering disciplines with electronics as the central focus.  Assignments and projects will vary from year to year depending on student interest and resources available.   This course can be used as a Focus Course for the Career Prep Electronics Program.

Electronics 12

This course will teach more advanced electronic circuits and design.  Students will work on a common project for the first part of the course.  After that assignments may be chosen from various engineering disciplines with electronics as the central focus.  Assignments and projects will vary from year to year depending on student interest and resources available.   This course can be used as a Focus Course for the Career Prep Electronics Program.

Electronics 12: Robotics

This course will completely focus on robots and their design. Students will work on a common project for the first part of the course.  After that assignments may be chosen from various engineering disciplines with Robotics as the central focus.  Assignments and projects will vary from year to year depending on student interest and resources available.

Engineering 11

This is an introductory course for students who are considering career or studies in Engineering, the Sciences, or other technical fields.   Students will work on a common project for the first part of the course.  Most often this is building a robot for Gladstone’s highly successful competitive VEX robotics program.  Later in the year assignments may be chosen from various engineering disciplines.  In the past this has included projects such as robots, trebuchets, r/c airplanes and boats, bridge building contests, tower building contests and even projects associated with career prep hours.  Assignments and projects will vary from year to year depending on student interest and resources available.

Technical Studies – Engineering 12A

This is an intermediate course for students who are considering career or studies in Engineering, the Sciences, or other technical fields.   Students will work on a common project for the first part of the course.  Most often this is building a robot for Gladstone’s highly successful competitive VEX robotics program.  Later in the year, assignments may be chosen from various engineering disciplines.  In the past this has included projects such as robots, trebuchets, r/c airplanes and boats, bridge building contests, tower building contests and even projects associated with career prep hours.  Assignments and projects will vary from year to year depending on student interest and resources available.   This course can be used as a Focus Course for the Career Prep Engineering Program.
