The Robot class we’ve been teasing for the last few months has finally been scheduled! The 3-part class will begin on Saturday July 29, 1-5pm.
In this class we will be building a simple obstacle avoiding wheeled robot with an Arduino for a brain. You will get to assemble the bot and outfit it with motors and sensors in Part One. In Part Two you will program the Arduino to make the bot sense and respond to the environment. Part Three you will take your breadboard design and turn it into a soldered project board to make it a permanent part of your robot.
Class size will be limited to 10 people and will cost $100 inclusive of parts.The link to register is on the registration tab. More detail about each class and instructor is available on the website registration tab.
