DashX will be teaching a Robotics class again this year at the QAGTC Conference!
2018 July 3 & 4
SkittleBot – Build, Program, and Bring-to-life your own Skittle Sorting robot!
Students will build and keep their own robot using LEDs, servos (motors), and an Arduino (microcontroller).
Hurry - this workshop always sells-out.
This is not your ordinary Robotics class – students will not just put a kit together, rather they will get a chance to learn about robotics at a much deeper level by actually making each robotic part from scratch.
Students will keep everything they make!
Students will learn hands-on skills as they drill, solder, assemble, and program.
Students will learn problem-solving and coding skills as they bring their new robot to life.
Students will learn to program their robot on their own laptop using a visual drag-and-drop programing language based on Scratch by MIT, called mBlock.
Laptop - Mac or Windows or Linux - iPads won't work
Limited laptops will be available to borrow by prior arrangement.
Nothing fancy is needed, any laptop new or even very old will work.
mBlock v3 - All students should download and install mBlock (version 3) before class.
Downloading and installing from here: mBlock v3 Download
RoboBloX Dragon Kit - $10
Students will receive, build and keep over $100 worth of equipment:
