9:00 am – 3:30 pm
Maximum of 10 students.
First, we’ll build familiarity with the Mindstorms set by having each student construct a professionally-designed robot. We will learn how to use the Mindstorms software as well as the Scratch platform for controlling the bots.
Then we will embark on the project of building own own vehicular robots, for exploring, racing, towing, and battling! We’ll teach our bots to park themselves, react to objects around them, and follow lines. And we’ll study basic mechanical engineering concepts like gearing and transmissions. No programming experience is necessary.
