Few things are more gratifying than building something for yourself. Over the course two weeks students will learn how to build and program a robot using Arduino and a pi-top [3] laptop using Python then they'll take it home!

Week 1, Build a Robot with Arduino: This course provides an introduction to the world of robotics and electrical engineering! We’ll move students from basic programming and electronic circuit concepts to building the robot and exploring each sensor/actuator’s capabilities by programming the RedBot Arduino platform.

Week 2, Build a Laptop with Python: The second week builds on knowledge of basic programming and circuitry to teach students to build their own unique projects using the Raspberry Pi and a variety of sensors. Students will learn the basics of Python, physical computing with the Pi, and how to use the Pi’s internet connectivity to communicate with it remotely.

Students in this academy will take home a robot and a laptop that they've built and programmed themselves!

What Students Will Learn

  • Programming in Arduino and Python
  • Electrical engineering and robotics
  • Mechanical engineering and coding
  • Signal processing and electronic circuit building
  • How to troubleshoot errors and solve logical problems
  • Raspberry Pi setup & usage
  • Python coding and Command line interfaces

What Students Will Create

  • A robot that performs autonomous tasks
  • Unique code that they understand
  • Designs for robot improvement and test courses
  • Their own fully operational laptop
  • Projects that utilize the power of Python, Raspberry Pi, and the internet
  • Basic code that they will be able to modify themselves for future projects

Join Digital Media Academy for this two-week deep dive into building and programming your own robot and laptop!
