CODE THAT ROBOT - USING EDISON

AGES 7+

Enter the fascinating world of robots and how to program them. Learn in a hands-on lab about programming, electronics, and robotics. Code to control the robot and use features like obstacle-avoidance, line-following, and remote control commands.

 

This class uses Edison to teach children about robots and how to program them. Please note that we expect students to bring their own Edison to the class that they can keep programming at home. This is available at specified retail outlets. This can also be ordered from SCRATCHPAD if you provide advance notice.

Have you ever wanted to get into robotics, but found it too difficult or expensive?
