    CODING for Robots (Arduino)  by Makerstate

    4:00 to 5:00 $20/class 11 classes (one time materials fee charge $45)

    Young engineers will build their own robot and learn to code it with the mBot Robot Kit--and take their own robot home! This fun combination of hardware and software design features robot challenges such as maze games and bot battles and culminates with a collaborative competition. Learning themes include mechanical engineering, circuitry, physics, robotics, and computer programming. The mBot features an Arduino brain, a microcontroller that is a fundamental computer component in robotics, the "Internet of Things", smart devices, and wearable electronics. Engineers will program the mBot, first in Scratch, a simple drag-and-drop, color-coded programming editor created by MIT to teach skills and concepts in programming, and advance into coding in Arduino, a C derivative, which is an industry-standard, real-word computer programming language. Engineers may also be able to explore Bluetooth capabilities, the use of sensors, and further customizations of their bot that they can take home to continue the playing, coding, and learning
