BENEFITS OF PORPOISE ROBOTICS
We give students a pathway to vocational jobs, higher education and worker retraining.
We provide a free curriculum, teacher training and student training
We have a selection affordable vehicle kits that are returned to kit form after each class
We make the Engineering side of STEM understandable and provide instruction for teachers on how to learn and teach the program. It can be self-taught for experienced robotics teachers
We provide instruction for one or two classes per day for a total of up to 42 students in 1, 2 or 3 hour classes. Teacher training 6 or 12 hours. These can be weekday, after-school or weekend.
Create excitement in Math, Science, Technology and Engineering. Keep kids in school with interesting projects.
Teams of 2- 4 students build ground, air and undersea vehicles kits and learn to modify computer programs for vehicle and sensor control.
These skills relevant to all mechatronics (electro-mechanical computer control)
