This exciting workshop combines art, mechanical design, and electronics. Throughout the Mechatronics course, students build upon their experience from Robotics to make their own animatronic creations. This workshop focuses on analog electronics principles, such as analog sound and precision motor control. Students will design their creations, fabricate parts using a 3D printer, and program the microcontroller to bring their animatronics to life.
This course is open to students entering Grades 8 through 12.
Students must have completed Robotics to enroll in this workshop.
