Oxford Robotics

Since 2002 Oxford Robotics is Inspiring youth in the pursuit of education and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics through SUPER FUN robotics and scientific projects.  
Unfortunately due to several critical circumstances the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to discontinue our program.  The ongoing restrictions on access to school facilities among other factors has brought us to this conclusion.  Many great things have been and continue to occur.  When we started our program 20 years ago the schools had limited to no STEM programs.  Today our schools are offering specialized STEM education in many areas of the curriculum.  We always said how we wanted the school to take over our program and they did!  There is even a robotics program at the high school!

For those of you interested in FIRST robotics, there exists many opportunities and resources.  FIRST programs are near by, from Unionville to Delaware.  Head over to the FIRST Inspires website and look them (Teams) up.  They would love to hear from you.  You can also start your own team.   Feel free to reach out to us and we will provide guidance and resources to help you.  No doubt that we will see you around, we will continue to support the FIRST programs as volunteers.  We would love to see you there in either role. 

FLLJr (FIRST LEGO League Junior) provides students from grade 2 through 4 the ability to learn critical skills in problem solving and principals of engineering through the development of simple machines using LEGO products.  They will be guided on a research project aligned with the season challenge and present their ideas through their LEGO creations.

FLL (FIRST LEGO League) provides students from grades 5 to 8 the ability to start or continue to learn through advanced challenges in real-world problem solving and advanced engineering concepts using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 platform to compete on a field of missions requiring fully autonomous robot operation.  Here they will learn about software development and mechanical engineering concepts such as gear ratios, inversions and differentials as well as mathematical concepts such as calculating degree of rotation and relation to precise navigation of the robot.  They will be introduced to sensors that enable interaction with real world elements and learn principals of light and sound wave behavior.

FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) provide students in grades 8 through 12 further advancement in engineering with Computer Aided Design (CAD) and application of engineering principles in development of the robotics solutions, management of projects, fiscal management and accounting and project management.  In FTC the student learns further advanced concepts of programming / software development as well as mechanical and electrical fundamentals with DC Controllers for motor and servo control.  Students at this level are allowed to fabricate their own parts and are provided more autonomy in the development of the solution to the competition challenges.
