Join the Capstone Robotics Team

THE CAPSTONE EXPERIENCE OF THE GCC ROBOTICS ACADEMY is a two-semester team project to design and build a complex robotic system.

HERE ARE A COUPLE VIDEOS PROFILING PROJECTS OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS

2013-14 Robotics Academy: youtu.be/hQVLDIReT-U 

ATTEND A 30-MINUTE CAPSTONE ORIENTATION WORKSHOP TO LEARN MORE AND ENROLL

10:00 AM on Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday (Aug 19, 20 & 22)
3:00 PM on Tuesday & Wednesday (Aug 19 & 20)

There is no need to RSVP to the workshops, so feel free to just show up when you can. If you'd like to attend a workshop but cannot make it to these dates, please email Tom Voden at tvoden@glendale.edu (Robotics Academy Director) to make other arrangements.

 

Our Philosophy

WE ARE COMMITTED TO CREATING an authentic and interdisciplinary learning experience in the context of robotics.

OUR PROGRAM IS STRUCTURED TO ENGAGE STUDENTS in hands-on design/prototype projects as they learn fundamental concepts from physics, mathematics, computer science, and engineering.

AFTER FINISHING INTRODUCTORY AND INTERMEDIATE CLASSES,  students participate in capstone courses and complete a sophisticated engineering project, such as the design and manufacture of an autonomous mobile robot for competition.

THIS EXPERIENCE PREPARES STUDENTS TO TRANSFER to four-year institutions and pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), where job opportunities are growing nearly twice as fast as non-STEM occupations.  

ENROLL. COLLABORATE. LEARN. INNOVATE.

Cooperation Builds Strength

GCC ROBOTICS ACADEMY serves as a point of collaboration with various community partners. Synergistic activities include:

•  FACILITATE AND HOST competitions and camps to get more K-12 students excited about careers in STEM.

•  FOSTER CONNECTIONS with industry to improve collaboration on curriculum and promote student internship opportunities.

•  PROVIDE SUPPORT for undergraduate research projects.

•  EXPAND OPPORTUNITIES for the capstone experience by including projects in other areas of engineering.
