What's Included

FREE sampler class! Ready to get moving? Students in this class will have a hands-on experience creating their own dynamic robots with sound, light or movement. The program involves extensive work in Arduino, a micro-controntroller, and Ardublock, a graphical programming language. These tools can be programmed to perform a range of operations and require understanding of coding, computer skills, tactile skills and design. Functions may include programming buttons, motors, switches, sensors, lights, and buzzers. There are 3 different classes included within Arduino Robotics. Each focuses on a different family of components to introduce new abilities and challenges while reinforcing core coding and wiring concepts. Light Working with light encompasses LED, dimming LEDs, motion sensors, light sensors, neopixel (full colour LEDs). Projects include creating a parent alarm, environmental nightlight and light shows
