This online workshop is open to all high school learners in Grades 10-12. Using an on-loan robot building kit, you will learn how to design, build and program robots. Unlike VEX or LEGO, these modular kits from Multiplo are built on the open source Arduino platform which will give you a great start toward understanding microcontrollers, or robot brains, in general. Via weekly online meetings, we will explore the course material together as a team, discussing and discovering the greater world of technology in general. In between these meetings, you’ll be programming and building robots by completing the weekly or bi-weekly projects (and hacking them of course!). Learners receive support and guidance as needed via video conference, instant messaging, and personalized feedback videos.
This four-credit course satisfies the Applied Skills/Fine Arts requirement for graduation.
The Fall session (Oct-Jan) of Makers 10: Robotics is now FULL. The course will be offered again in early February 2016. For more info, and to be added to the waitlist, please email makers@selfdesign org.
