This project focuses on authentic problem solving through a design process including; identifying and defining a problem, gathering and analyzing information, determining performance criteria for successful solutions, generating alternative solutions and building prototypes, implementing choices and evaluating outcomes. The Vex Robotic systems purchased with grant funds offers students these opportunities to solve complex problems in real world situations and quickly and decisively make changes, through design modifications and computer programming changes to complete the tasks presented to them in the design competition challenges. Students compete against each other, other schools and even other countries if they continue to move on to regional, state, national and even world competitions. The comprehensive curriculum and projects through the collaboration of Vex Robotics Inc. and Project Lead The Way National have created an unparalleled level of rigorous curriculum for students to be ready graduates of the Syracuse City School District to move on to successful jobs in the 21st century economy, including a life of active citizenship.
