Description

Get started with Arduino and making robots.

You will learn how the arduino board works, how to build basic circuits and control LEDS.

Then you will move on to programming motors and combine everything to build and program your own robot.

By the end of the course you will understand:

How to program outputs in Arduino

How to build a basic circuit

How to use a motor driver

How to put everything together to make a robot

You will also understand how and when to use functions, if statements and variables.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who wants to learn to code and make robots

Learn Robotics the Fun Way

RobotFun is a new concept in education and entertainment for children of all ages. Our Robotics Masterclasses and activity workshops are a great idea for school lessons and after school clubs. Robots are a great way for schools to meet Primary National Curriculum computing requirements. We also provide robot themed kids birthday parties.

 

RobotFun is based in Suffolk, but all our robots are able to travel.

Roaming Robots not only prides itself on being the Home of Robotic Entertainment, but in the last few years has also developed an extensive range of educational projects, which could be run at your school, college or university.

Designing and building robots is a subject which brings both excitement and knowledge into the classroom environment in a fun and unique way. We all know how important it is to promote engineering, and some say there is a lack of good British engineers these days. Well, we are working hard to change this. All of our projects strive to inspire the younger generation and try to get away from this preconception that engineering is about just getting your hands dirty. We show that it can also be creative, rewarding and fun!

You have seen the machines on the TV show Robot Wars, and with our projects you are given the opportunity to experience it in the flesh. We have a wide range of projects which can be tailored to suit your requirements. Some pictures from our previous educational events can be found here.
