Getting started with robotics will intrigue and engage cadets, students, and adults in an exciting manner with endless possibilities for extension. This kit will have a robotic arm kit, USB programmable software, curriculum, and instructional video. This beginning project can lead to national competitions in FIRST, Botball, VEX, National Underwater Robotics and BEST Robotics. The program will complement CAP's Robotics curriculum and will help youth explore careers in robotics to include manufacturing, unmanned space exploration, and prosthetic engineering and other medical applications. Tapping the expertise of CAP's robotics experts, or volunteers you know, will help guide youth toward exciting career possibilities- AND- provide some assistance and guidance in building and using this robotic arm. Many youth have found very creative ways to use the robotic arm - hope yours do, too!
