Robotics Apprenticeship

June 19th-23rd & July 31st-August 4th, 2017

(8th through 12th graders)

Explore the world of computers and robots using the Raspberry Pi 3.
Take a vacation from twiddling your thumbs texting, surfing, and playing games. It’s time to use a computer and a collection of motors, gears, wheels, and sensors to assemble and program a real robot.
You’ll learn how to use the Raspberry Pi 3, a real computer, which can do almost everything you do with your gaming machine, or smartphone–except waste time and destroy brain cells.
Learn the basics of the Linux operating system, and the Python programming language. Use hand tools to assemble a versatile robot chassis. And, you get to take the Raspberry Pi 3 and your robot home with you at the end of the class.
