Building An Arduino Based Robot


This course will be a multi-session workshop that will take you through step-by-step of assembling, understanding, and programming an Arduino based robotic platform.

The Sessions

This is a multipart course run over a period of 7 weeks, each week you will learn about and receive a new component which you will add to the robot you will be building, at the end of the course you will have a fully functional simple robot design to keep and build upon further.

The build will culminate with a additional competition evening, where attendees get to race their robots against each other in a set of challenges, with prizes and trophies for the winners.
