Introduction to Competitive Robotics consists of fourteen hands-on activities enhanced by interactive media, videos and simulations. Through step-by-step activities covering robot assembly and programming, teams learn to build and program a competitive robot for both autonomous and operator control. Activities enable teams to quickly understand and apply the concepts many teams struggle with, like encoders, ultrasonic, line followers and PID control.

Analytical Integrated Mathematics (AIM) is a mathematics course that teaches using a non-traditional applied methodology. It is specifically directed at students who have had traditional secondary math education and who require a different approach to master the material. The underlying philosophy of the course is that math is a tool that is better learned in the context that it will be used. It has been created for students who learn best by having developmentally appropriate activities in which what they have learned is immediately implemented.
In Unit 6, students participate in a robotics competition.
