Electronics/Robotic 10

Electronics/Robotics 10 is a course designed to introduce students to the world of electronics & robotics. The course is 2 terms in length (approx 50hrs). The students will begin by breadboarding simple circuits and in doing so, learn what some of the more common components do. They will also be introduced to microprocessors using ARDUINO, where they will learn how to program as well. Once a number of labs are completed the students will build a circuit board and use a 3d printer to make a project.

ARDUINO LABS (Level 1)

Arduino Getting Started – An introduction
Arduino Lab #1 – Blink LED/RGB LED
Arduino Lab #2 – 5 LED Sequence/Call Function
Arduino Lab #3 – If statements and Variables
Arduino Lab #4 – LCD Screen
Arduino Lab #5 – Servo Motor

Arduino Nano – Hardware Reference

Useless Box Project (Level 1)

The Useless Box is a simple and fun little project that teaches students the various processes/stages of taking a project from conception to completion.  Students will breadboard the circuit, program an Arduino Nano to make the circuit work, create a printed circuit circuit board, design a case in Inventor, 3D print the case and finally assemble it all together to create a professional looking project.  See youtube video of it in action HERE.

OTTO (Level 1 and/or Level 2)

Students will build and program this small little robot called OTTO.  It will be able to walk and avoid obstacles and hopefully dance to music!!
