Description 

This camp will involve students developing, building, and programming a robot and a more advanced robotic coding project to follow. Students will work hands-on to design, build, program, and document progress.
 

Introduction

Robotics is one of the advanced Computer Science applications used to solve various types of problems by automating dangerous processes from business to healthcare. Robotics concepts are one of the most important drivers for the positive future development of all industries in the world. This program contains a collection of different tools and topics and your learning will start at ground zero with all of them. You will explore different robotics case studies, programming, and learning different design structures with their formal definitions.


Objectives

  • Learning various features of robots.
  • Learn how to use robotic software.
  • Learn how to automate different processes using robots.
  • Principles of robotic programming.
  • Learn to design, build, present, and test various robotic programs.
     

Projects

Review the Projects page to get more details about each project.

PROJECT LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3
DIFFICULTY LEVEL: EASY TO MODERATE

Using Lego MINDSTORMS EV3 Education, students will learn the basics of coding for a Lego robot including building the robotic hardware.
 

PROJECT ARDUINO ROBOTICS
DIFFICULTY LEVEL: MODERATE TO ADVANCED

Using Arduino, students will build the robotic hardware and circuitry to create commands for robotic components.
 

PROJECT Smart Car
LEVEL: ADVANCED

Using SunFounder Starting Kit for Arduino, students build a "smart car" to realize different movements and responses of a smart vehicle car.


hardware & software

KSI provides a Developer Station for class that may be used by all students. This requires students to work together and use materials thoughtfully. Purchasing equipment is the best course of action as this allows students to take materials home with them. We provide you with the hardware and software purchasing details which are typically available on Amazon. Hardware and software requirements for the Coding for Robotics camp are as follows: 

Hardware:

  • Lego® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3

  • Laptop/Computer

  • Track Model

  • Raspberry Pi

  • Arduino

  • SunFounder

Software:

  • Microsoft® Windows® 7/8/10 (32- or 64-bit)
  • Arduino
  • Raspberry Pi
