Build A Robot
Build A Robot
MONDAYS | 29th July - 16 September, 4-5pm | Age 9-14
This term we're offering an 8 week introductory robotics course.
We'll each start with a set of parts, learn what each of them is, and how it works before adding them to the robot chassis. The aim is for everyone to end up with a functional robotic vehicle by the end of the term, and to be able to explain the function of each part.
This is very much a hands-on experience, and each student will be working on their own robot. Robot kits are available to own ($40), or can be hired for the term ($20).
During this Discovery Lab course, we'll be exploring basic electronics and DC circuitry, troubleshooting with a multimeter, and also working our way through the fundamentals of simple motion control. This is quite a bit to get through in any depth over a term, so we'll be leaving programming the vehicles for a future course. We will provide simple operational programming along the way as we get each part working, so the vehicles will be functional at the end of the course.
Location: Manifold, 21 Devon Street West, New Plymouth
NOTE: We require a minimum of 8 students to run this course. If we do not reach the required number all orders will be fully refunded.
Option 1. 8 week course ($160) + Robot kit to rent ($20) = $180
Option 2. 8 week course ($160) + Robot kit to buy ($40) = $200
