Summer at Woodstock – Robotics

Program, Build and Test Robots

In the Robotics Course, students are offered a comprehensive understanding of robotics and automation on a virtual simulation software. Students learn complex programming, how to make the mechanism & chassis of the robot, use and understand the working of sensors like ultrasonic sensors, gyro sensors, colour sensors, touch sensors, and more.

 

Who should take this course?

Anyone interested in getting a powerful insight to programming – as robotics is simple to comprehend & anyone who wants to enhance problem-solving skills.

 

Highlights & Learning

This course will be delivered through the Lego Robotics Virtual Toolkit platform for instruction. The simulation software enables students to learn and practice building a robot, programming it, and testing it – without the need of physical robotics kits. Some of the sessions also utilise past WRO (World Robot Olympiad) challenges to be solved, this will help students prepare and participate as teams when WRO resumes. Experienced Curiosity Gym mentors will guide students to use this platform and its various modules for design and programming of robots.
