Using a combination of mechanical, electrical and software engineering, learn how to design, assemble and program a robot using your own Arduino microcontroller, included in the Sparkfun RedBot kit. With RedBot, an electrical engineering prototyping platform, you’ll learn about electronics and how circuits function. Plus, you will rapidly create and deploy your ideas as you bring your robotic creations to life!
Use controllers to operate lights, motors and LEDs, and then test your engineering skills in a series of competitive challenges with your classmates using the robot you’ve designed. Showcase your robots at the end of the week and take home your Arduino kit to tinker with.
