During this workshop, students will gain practical experience and knowledge in the fields of Robotics, Computer Programming, and Microprocessors.
The workshop will use the ActivityBot from Parallax which has the capability to execute multiple instructions simultaneously, realize high accuracy maneuvers and also incorporate sensors and other circuits without the need of soldering.
Students will learn to assemble the robot and add motors and sensors (ultrasound, infrared, light and touch) with the purpose of learning how a robot interacts with the environment. Students will also receive instructions on how to use the C programming language to write new and modify existing robot programs.
The workshop program is concise and has been carefully designed for the step-by-step acquaintance of participants. Detailed instructions, diagrams, programming code and continuous help and support will be provided to students. With the conclusion of the workshop, students have the option of taking the robot home with an additional fee of 200€.
