Exploration of Mechatronics: Students Grades 9-11
Do you enjoy working in the fields of Technology and Engineering? If so, we have a place for you in the Kent Career Tech Center’s Exploration of Mechatronics class!
Exploration of Mechatronics gives students an introduction to the fields of robotics, engineering, high tech manufacturing and other math, science and technology related fields. Students work in teams, completing real project work while exploring the basics of Mechatronics.
This course is offered in a hybrid format – partially online and partially face-to-face. This unique structure creates more flexibility in a student’s schedule. Students in this full year program can expect the following schedule:
- 1 day working hands-on at the Tech Center (6:55-9:10am)
- 3 days at the home high school working independently online (during 1st hour)
- Every Friday at the home high school connected virtually to the instructor and other students (1st hour)
*We provide students with the laptops and special software they need to participate and complete work when not on our campus.
This is a unique opportunity for hands-on, creative students looking for a different option for their schedule. It’s a great foundation for students interested in attending one of our other STEM courses in their junior or senior year, and it helps prepare students to be college and career ready. Students can earn Online Learning, VPAA and either math or science credit for the course.
