Let's Build a Robot!
Join us to build a robot friend who can follow you around and navigate your home without bumping into things! This workshop by Tess Sutherland will introduce participants to electronics, soldering, circuitry, Arduino programming, and basic robotics ideas - including anthropomorphism and behaviour creation.
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Over the years Arduino has been the brain of thousands of projects, from everyday objects to complex scientific instruments. https://www.arduino.cc/
