Welcome to the Robotics Class!
The Alva School’s robotics class is devoted to be the first Lee County middle school to build an autonomous car using solar energy and Bluetooth controlled.
Objective: To enhance the students' education with Engineering principles through the Arduino microcontroller and C programming. Obtaining this knowledge, will allow students to excel in certain careers.
The purpose of this class is to introduce new technology to students so they have an advantage in high school and future education as well as exploring new opportunities, to make a safe, green, multi-controllable vehicle that makes many tasks easier. We want to explore solar energy and its benefits for the future.
