Course Summary Program

During this four day intensive robotics electronics summer course, Participants would be introduced to Arduino robot kits and Arduino programming, including C++, of which no previous knowledge is required. We start with an introduction to key engineering concepts followed by an introduction to the Arduino environment.

Participants would also be taking a closer look at the components that make up the actuator, sensors or any electronics device and how to build theirs from those components. We will also be working with a microcontroller; the Arduino Uno R3.

Participants then progress to study how robots navigate through their environment, exploring an assortment of sensors and factors including motion, distance, acceleration, sound, and light sensors. They will also learn how robots detect obstacles and avoid them, how they use control motors to achieve different types of motion, and how they can be programmed to follow certain patterns and avoid others.

If you would like to build, programme and control your own robot, this is the course for you. Students on the Summer Robotics programme will gain a valuable insight into a career in Robotics, and be able to decide whether this is a career path they would like to pursue.

The electronics class will be limited to 15 students. Academically, the only requirement student will need is good English and Math BODMAS and modulus. It is quite easy to understand the concepts and the analogy though programming will take some practice.

Why choose Robotics for 10-17 years?

A robot is a physical device that uses its sensors and code to understand its environment, and in turn produces efficient, robust and flexible actions. This course places emphasis on both the theoretical and practical aspects of robotics, to provide students aged 10 – 17 years with a solid grounding in robotics.

How will Introduction to Robotics Electronics help me?

This four day summer course is fast-paced and activity-based. A lot of material will be covered, and students will have plenty of chances to ask questions. Students, under the guidance of their expert facilitator, will learn the fundamentals of robotics electronics and programing. Each lesson is accompanied by an exercise to help students cement their understanding and visualize it in the real-world. For the full course content, please see the Day-by-Day Schedule below.

Is this course for me?

If you have ever wanted to build and control a robotic car by your programme, then this course is for you.
