At the original W&B, 195g Elm Street
Cost: $200 plus $79 materials fee (yours to keep)
Instructor: Meredith Garniss
Want to make art pieces that are interactive? Ready to take your kinetic works to the next level? Or just want to learn the basics of robotics?
Using the Arduino microcontroller, you will learn the parts of a robot, and how to put a moving and interactive creation together. We will identify the input options, power, programming and actuators of your creation. You'll learn the anatomy of a program, and how to get it to your robot. We will progress to the use of a breadboard and soldering to expand the capabilities of our machine. We'll also cover a brief review of basic mechanical movements.
This class assumes no prior knowledge of robotics or programming. However, you should know how to use a computer. And if you have a windows or mac laptop, bring it to the class so you won't need to wait for one of our shared computers.
You'll be able to keep your robot, and reuse your microcontroller for future projects. You'll also find out where to buy parts, and what the other options are on the market for “robot parts”.
You will receive (and get to keep):
* One Arduino Diecimilia Microcontroler Board
* USB cable
* Battery and Battery Connector
* Full-sized Breadboard
* Jump Wires
* Toggle Switch
* Piezo Sensor
* DC Motor
* Servo Motor
* Stepper Motor
* Many LEDs
* TIP120 Transistor
* Resistors and Diodes
* Small Toy to Modify
