A fun, hands-on introduction to robotics for thinkers, inventors, and creators. Gain insight into how robots “think” and process different input signals to achieve a desired goal. You will build a robot and learn about coding, engineering concepts, mechanical robotics concepts, and more. In this combination lecture and hands-on lab class, discover the ways robotics influence the interconnectedness of our world and the Internet of Things (IoT). Bring a laptop to class with either a Windows, Apple, or Linux operating system. Purchase a PI-BOT® V2.00 kit (approx. $99) online from www.stemcenterusa.com prior to class.
