Robotics and Programming Lab
Inspired by possibility, students in this lab will discover electronics, robotics, and programming in a fun, hands-on and welcoming environment. Using an Arduino microcontroller, students will learn the fundamentals of the immensely popular C++ programming language by assembling and programming a wheeled robot. There will be lots of opportunity to work on personal projects and bring students’ automated ideas to life by developing the capabilities of their robot: adding lights, sensors, grabbers, pushers, and even custom building components using our 3D printer.. No experience necessary.
