Suggestions for a New Robotics Class/Workshop

Hi! I hope I’m posting in the correct spot for this.

I was informed today by my school that I’ll be getting a new classroom to use as a dedicated workshop for a Robotics class with the goal of competing in FIRST competition next year. Up until now, I’ve only taught Computer Science related courses so I’m trying to learn as much as I can for this new class.

I’m hoping to get some suggestions about what tools, kits, equipment, storage units, and safety I would need to purchase for this new class to make it safe and effective. This is a class designed for 10-12th graders. So far I’m looking at the VEX V5 Classroom Starter Bundle and the VEX V5 Classroom Super Bundle.

Any tips or suggestions would be much appreciated! I was asked to put a list together in 2 days.

So…FIRST Robotics and VEX Robotics are two different competitions…if you’re competing in FRC, you’ll probably want to go to the Chief Delphi forum.

Oh! Thanks, I didn’t know that. I’ll look for that forum now :slight_smile:

No problem. When you run out of money from doing FRC, you’re always welcome to come back to VEX Robotics :rofl:
