An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until March 16, 2023
William is a high school sophomore who has been teaching robotics since 2018. He is passionate about innovation and fixing problems, big and small, in everyday life. From automated air duct cleaners, to pipe-freeze prevention systems, William has been inventing robots to solve real world problems. After being inspired at a young age by sci-fi movies like The Terminator and Wall-E, he began working on his own robots and inventions. He strives to inspire and foster this kind of innovative spirit in children and adults alike through robotics.
In this 8 week Beginner Robotics Series, students will learn how to use the Arduino microcontroller to interact with the world through robotics. The series will cover basic motors, sensors, and other tools such as 3D printing. With a project oriented approach, students will be building their own projects with a high level of customizability and independence with instructor guidance. Students will be creating things such as robot grippers, auto light switches, and pipe freeze warning systems. Each class will be focused on small projects, which culminate into a bigger final project on robot cars. Registration closes Jan 17.
