Circuits, Electronics and Mechatronics in Computer Engineering Class
Upper School Computer Engineering students studied circuits, electronics, and mechatronics in early March. “The students are designing, 3D printing, programming, and testing their own custom robots to complete three specific missions,” said computer science teacher Marcus Twyford. Twyford said the challenging lesson will require students to work in teams. Each team will be provided with a handful of parts and have to design electrical processes to run motors, servos, and sensors, as well as design the circuits and 3D print car bodies, wheels, and steering components. “Students used their projects to compete in various competitions before spring break,” said Twyford.
