Robots are fascinating machines that interact with the physical world through automated processes. This workshop introduces students to fundamental engineering concepts as they build and program their own autonomous robots. While constructing their robots, students will learn the basics of mechanics, electronics, and software engineering while testing the limits of their creations.


Students will learn:
  • Motors, sensors, and mechanical design
  • Mechanical engineering concepts
  • Introductory high-level programming
  • Applied math and science topics such as variables, electricity, circuits, and logic
