IAP 2010 Activity

Fun With Robotics And Electronics
Joseph Okor, Christopher D Wreh II
Mon-Fri, Jan 18-22, 25-29, 04-06:00pm, 2-136

No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)
Prereq: None

If you are interested in robotics and/or how to use micro controllers - such as AVR from Atmel - to control devices, this is for you. We have developed 3 easy to use robots - Speedy, Kicker and Roamer - that make robotics accessible to almost anybody. In this course, you learn to program Speedy to race against other Speedys, form a team of up to 3 Kickers to play ball against other teams of Kickers, and if you are adventurous, build task specific attachments to Roamer.
This activity combines the fun and excitement of 6.185, 6.186 and 6.187 without the hard work and time commitment.
