Workshop: Intro to Analog Robotics with Michael Awad

About the workshop.

This hands-on workshop will teach the basics of robotic components, in theory and in practice. We’ll take apart off-the-shelf devices to identify motors, switches, batteries, and power supplies that make these devices move, and then learn how to re-appropriate them into our own robotic projects. No computers, microcontrollers, or programming necessary.
