Robotics - Prototyping with Breadboards

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this hands-on workshop, participants will be introduced to prototyping using breadboards. These activities can be incorporated into science, physics and STEM classrooms or maker spaces. Participants will learn how to connect simple breadboard circuits comprising LEDs, resistors, and switches. They will explore more complex projects involving sensors for detecting and seeking obstacles, and controlling motors. There will be a discussion on how these skills can be further evolved into embedded and robotics projects incorporating Arduino and Raspberry Pi, ThinkerSheld and lots of other equipment. An interactive showcase of projects will be available, including a simple motor, steady-hand game, dimmer switch, a lie-detector, a weather station, and various robots.
