STEM learning made fun with robots:
Weeks 1-2, Tuesdays, January 24 & 31: Programming Robots plus AI
Use computer code to make robots and robotic components perform complex tasks. Experiment with programming using a Pico® Cricket® microcontroller to make a sensor that responds to touch, light, or pressure. Use a simple math formula to have your microcontroller use AI (artificial intelligence) to guess your number.
Weeks 3-4, Tuesdays, February 7 & 14 (No class Feb. 21): Engineering Mechanical Systems
Use recycled materials and motors to build a ping pong ball launcher. Next, construct a simple hovercraft or other propeller driven system. Take home your project home.
Weeks 5-6, Tuesdays, February 28 & March 7: Build a Household Device using Arduino™ Microcontrollers
Look “under the hood” and find out what makes electronic objects tick when you explore Arduino™ Microcontrollers - the world’s most popular microcontroller. Use a Sparkfun™ kit to build an automatic pet feeder or other useful household device.
Weeks 10-12, Tuesdays, April 11, 18, & 25: EV3 Task Force
You and your team’s robot will, compete with other teams’ robots to follow a maze, play space music on a keyboard, and pick up “space junk.”
