Robotics 101 is an 8 week course designed to teach the basics of robotics. This course will look at robots with and without sensors attached and the coding required for each. Different challenges are presented each week such as building a simple remote control robot, coding and solving a maze. Each session builds on the previous so attendance is important. The final class is a contest to get a robot solve a maze in the fastest time. By the end of this course, students will have an understanding of basic sensors, robotics concepts and Arduino code.
For ages 12 to 17.
