Microcontrollers, Robotics, Rovers and More!
Come explore the basics of robotics using sensors, LEDS, motors and other components. Investigate the fundamentals of electronics, coding and logic. Delve into design thinking, and learn practical skills such as wiring, and soldering, and even 3D design, and printing! They explore how sensors, motors, and servos are used to allow robots to interact with the world around us, and after learning the basics of how the Arduino Microcontroller can be wired and programmed, the campers will build their very own obstacle–avoiding rover using provided components and their own design and imagination. The campers will not be learning the Arduino text–based coding language (similar to C++) in depth, but they will have a basic introduction, using an existing Arduino “sketch” to initially operate their rover, and then modifying or ‘tweaking’ the code to improve its functionality.
