BotBasics (Ages 5+)

Robot HandIf you love robotics, but haven't been quite sure where to start, then this class is for you!

Even the most complicated robots are made from the same basic building blocks:
Resistors, capacitors, transistors, actuators, servos, sensors, lithium-ion batteries, and PCBs.

Ever wonder what these are and what they do?  Come and find out!  In this hands-on course we will look at, play with, and learn about the many electronic and mechanic components used in the field of robotics.

Learn the skills you need to take you from dreaming and talking about robots to actually designing, building, and programming them!
