Workshop Description

Instructor: Karen Giacopuzzi Instruction: $450 Materials: $50 Total: $500 Note: This workshop uses typed coding and is suitable for kids with a strong interest in writing code. Using a mini computer and hacked toys, you'll make a remote control robot from the ground up. This is not a click together kit so each one is unique. Your robots can self drive to avoid obstacles but will respond to the commands you send using an ordinary TV remote control. Once you get your robot working you'll add some personality by customizing your bot with art supplies and toy parts. You'll learn key concepts typical of a first year high school or college coding class but without the homework. This camp has been a favorite for years at Gadget Lab. You'll learn key principles of coding and circuit building while making something that is both ridiculous and fun. Ages:11 -15 Screentime rating: 50% Tech Resume Skills: Analog vs Digital Circuits, Inputs vs Outputs, Variables, Constants, Functions, Pulse Width Modulation, If -Then Statements, Recursive loops, Binary and Hexidecimal Numbers, Use of Geared and Servo Motors, Fabrication Skills. Reuse: Acrylic from TVs and Monitors for the Chassis, Old toys for the robot's character.
