Summer Schools: Rapid robot development (age 13–15)
Fri 28 July 2017, 10:30 – 15:30 BST
In this workshop with Perry Childs, students will experience the rapid development lifecycle of robotics by designing and building their own ‘Cardbot’ in just one day!
This fun packed challenging day will teach you how to build your own self-controlled robot using the open source Arduino micro controller, an ultrasonic distance sensor, light sensor, two motors and motor driver board. You will experience - as in industry - what it takes from an initial idea and deliver it using the ‘development lifecycle’ approach. You will learn how to build and upload simple logic programmes to bring your creations to life. Throughout the day you will have a series of tasks to complete so that you can demonstrate your new found robotic skills. You will work in teams to complete the day’s tasks and see which team has built the best performing robot.
Please note: This workshop is strictly for 13–15 year-olds and will include a 45 minute supervised lunch break. Students will not be able to leave the building at lunch time unless permission is given at the time of booking. Students should bring lunch and a drink, pens and pencils.
This workshop is based on an Ri Engineering Science Masterclass. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on email@example.com with any questions.
Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
