The HCC robotics curriculum aims to excite students about robotics, using the surgery robots developed by Intuitive Surgical to guide the curriculum.
The first lesson teaches students about surgery: differentiating open, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery, introducing surgery timeouts, and allow students to apply this new knowledge by acting out a surgery timeout.
The second lesson teaches students about abdominal organs so they can have a better understanding of surgeries. As an activity, students explore surgery cases and answer questions relating to the cases.
In lesson three, students learn about some famous engineers, and then are given the chance to exercise the knowledge they gained from the previous two lessons in a quiz bowl.
