STEM learning made fun with robots:
Tuesdays, January 24&31
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.
Tuesdays, February 7 & 14 (No class Feb. 21)
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.
Tuesdays, February 28 & March 7
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.
Tuesdays, March 14 & 28 (No class March 21)
Build a redbot chassis for your robot body, then program an Arduino™ MicrocontrollersArduino to drive it. Become acquainted with the EV3® LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robots by programming them to perform tasks. LEGO®, MINDSTORMS®, and the LEGO® logo are trademarks of the LEGO Group.
Tuesday, April 4
Tuesdays, April 11, 18, & 25
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.”
Class topics change each semester.
