Sun. June 14, 2015 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Free ticketed event
This workshop is based on a successful, 100-level introductory course for mechanical engineering students at Cal Poly, Pomona. In this course, students build and program an Arduino-compatible robot. They learn about gears, assemble a gearbox, get introduced to basic electronics, circuitry and soldering, build a robot, integrate sensors, and learn to program in C. In addition, students design and build attachments for the robot using a 3-D printer.
In this workshop, participants will work in teams of two to build and program the robot. They must bring a laptop computer so they can program their robot.
