Course Description

Build and keep your own autonomous robot rover in this brand new Kids That Code engineering course! First, we’ll construct and program Arduino-based prototypes to experiment with motors and sensors. Once students have a grasp on how each component works, students will be given a complete set of robotic components which will be assembled together as a class! Students will learn how to program ultrasonic distance sensors and drive motors in C++ during the prototyping stage and use a microcontroller to drive the final product. The final microcontroller will be programmed to ensure everybody gets a fully-functioning rover to take home and play with. Your finished bot will roam around rooms and avoid obstacles autonomously!

What’s cool: This course combines software, hardware, and hands-on building activities
