I’m running a series of classes in my school (I’m a student studying there) and I don’t know quite what to do as some projects. Last year we were hoping to build a ardupilot plane but that took to long with the rather limited sessions. The class was also too small. This year I would like to take about 8 people with a budget of around £400 ($600~). Some small section projects (LEDs, servos etc) and move onto a finished board or some such thing. Many thanks for your help/suggestions in advance
In the playground section there is some information on class curriculums. May not be example what you are looking for, but a resource to look through.
Here is an idea I heard about from a local robotics class. Their idea was to design an automated “sign printer.” Using gears and Lego pieces, they created an arm (using a Sharpie) that would write out letters.
Thanks. I think the people in the class would mostly also need an introduction into electronics, some of which the school provides. I want to make the finished thing small/cheap so each person/group can make one and take it home and therefore preferably a problem which can be solved in many different ways. I like the idea of the printer thing… We also have access to standard Al-strip tools and drills/saws etc as well as a laser cutter and possibly a CNC machine (if its ever used). We are very lucky but lack good teaching for the keener people.
line follower robot?
simple, and anyone into robotics has to build at least one…
either that or a simple “move around not hitting walls” robot?
