Basic Robotics Workshop using Arduino and Scratch

A minimum of 5 pax is required to start the workshop. Coding has become an important skill in the future. With Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence, more devices will be autonomous and interconnected. Embedded Systems and Robots will be pervasive in future. This workshop lets you learn how to programme a robot to perform responsive tasks. mBot is a versatile robot for young kids to build, program and enhance. Its brain is based on an open platform Arduino processor board. mBlock, a user-friendly graphical programming based on Scratch 2.0, will be used to programme mBot. What you will learn: • Ease of graphical programming. • Concepts of sensors and their applications. • Control of input and output (IO) of a microprocessor. • How to program a robot to respond to keyboard commands. • Applications of robots in real life. The workshop will end with a fun game in whic...
