In our Robotics field trip, kids will design, plan, program, and build an electronic invention while using a robotic microcontroller and learning how to code. They can create their own robotic invention and make it light up.
Robotics: Robotic Pets (Gr. 3+)
Using the Microbit microcontroller, kids learn the basics of controlling electricity while making robots into their own interactive pets. For more experienced makers the functionality they can add to what their pet can do grows increasingly complex.
Robotics: Light Show (Gr. 5+)
The Arduino is a prototyping microcontroller popular with both hobbyists and professionals. Kids learn to use a breadboard to wire up circuitry the Arduino can connect to, and then to program their robot to interact with their lights and switches creating their very own customized light show.
