Sensors and CAD: Taking Over Two Computer Labs


We are preparing for our preseason challenge, and have learned two new skills today. We learned how to use Inventor to do CAD drawings. This will be helpful for creating 3D printed pieces, or for sending out for parts from the machine shop.

For some K-Bots the 4th time’s the charm!

We worked through a CAD tutorial, and have a bit of homework to complete before earning a K-Botics CAD certificate.

Many thanks to the returning K-Bots for helping out with the tutorial!

Our other activity was to use BOEbots to explore sensors. We had fun programming our robots to do different things!

We’re having a lot of fun, and learning so many new skills.

“I can’t decide if I’m learning more, or having more fun!”

There’s learning all over the place!
