Summer at Woodstock – Robotics

Learn to Build and Program Robots

A fun and engaging space where participants will explore, learn, and build robots with the LEGO EV3 Mindstorms kit. Participants will learn how to program and implement the algorithms that control adequately a robot with the purpose of solving real life problems. The projects enclosed within the course will gradually present the participants with increasing complexity of mechanics, algorithms, and electronics systems and will prompt to look for solutions to real life problems in fields such as engineering.

 

Who should take this course?

The course is a brilliant introduction to the world or simple machines, mechanics, robotics and digital programming. It is ideal for students with little to no experience with robotics and/or programming.

 

How will participants be different when they’ve completed this course? What skills or knowledge will they have gained?

Students will have gained valuable skills in engineering and technology, as well as general creative problem solving skills.

 

Why is your experience so relevant for this course?

I have been teaching Computer Programming and related concepts, including robotics, for 12 years.

Age Range: 10-18

Course Timings: 50 hours of instruction
