Learn How the Robotics Team at Carl Hayden High School Uses 3d Printing to Push the Boundaries of Stem Learning – Mastering the Skills That Ensure Success in a Rapidly Changing World.
High school robotics teams have never been more popular, and perhaps none are more impressive or well known as the talented crew of 14 - 18 year old students in Phoenix, Arizona that make up Falcon Robotics. Led by the inspiring coach Faridodin “Fredi” Lajvardi, a Marine Science teacher at Carl Hayden High School, Falcon Robotics was catapulted to notoriety in 2004 when they competed as underdogs against high schools and universities to win a national championship.
“Falcon Robotics works sort of like a small company” coach Fredi explains. “Different teams collaborate to design things like navigation software or propulsion systems, solving smaller problems, then fit them together to solve the broader challenges set out by the competition.” With access to reliable and intuitive MakerBot 3D p
