We’ve seen them in movies, read about them in books, and incorporated them in our homes (here's looking at you, Roomba®). Robots have become a huge part of everyday life and we're embracing the fascination with them to stimulate STEAM interest and learning through hands-on making.
But we're not just building robots. Our makers are learning to understand what MAKES a robot and the engineering behind them. We're covering the basics of robotic programming, electrical circuitry, and mechanical design. Makers are challenged to build and program bots to complete different tasks—from tiny basic bots that walk up an incline, to autonomous, Arduino or Raspberry Pi, bluetooth-controlled robots that respond to sound commands.
This isn't a build it and leave it program. As with all of our 5ES classes, all materials and supplies are included in class fees and makers take home their robotic creations after final class for further exploration and learning. Be prepared to see the amazing robotic projects your maker will bring home!
