First, the students will learn how to create an object with a Computer Aided Design (CAD) Program and then make it become reality with a 3D Printer.

Second, the students will recreate a model vehicle by drafting it, develop it on a CAD program and then 3D print it.

Third, the students will apply their new skills by drafting their own idea, CAD and 3D print it.

Fourth, the students will draft, CAD and 3D print the chasis of a robot and then assemble it by adding motors and chips.

Finally, students will design and write programs so that their vehicle can compete in a number of activities. Eventually they will add and program sensors to perform more advanced tasks.
