Hands on Robotics Experience

ASU Preparatory Academy Robotics and Engineering students work on a wide range of projects throughout the school year. This year students programmed their very own robots, worked with theater to create props, and made computer carts for several classrooms. Learn to be a Robotics Master by making changes to the robots, programing them, and controlling their movement. Our high school students will work with you to help you through the process as you learn about programming robots.
