A full day intensive workshop.
Featuring the Vellman “ESCAPE” Robot kit
So you’d like to learn about robotics? Get started with IXR’s introductory robotics workshop! With the guidance of our class instructors, participants will build their very own “Escape” robot kit. This robot uses infrared sensors to “see” obstacles, which it will navigate around and avoid. Build an obstacle course out of shoe boxes and furniture and the Escape robot will use sensors to figure its way through.
You will learn:
• Improved soldering skills (intermediate-level)
• Recognize and identify a wide variety of electronic components, and their use
• Desoldering and repair, using a vacuum desoldering station
• Gearboxes and basic mechanical assembly skills
Class Cost: $100 – includes materials cost (one robot kit with both wheels and legs). Complimentary pizza lunch will be provided.
Payment for the class can be made here:
Kids bring a parent free!
Parent-child teams who are building a kit together pay only 1 registration.
Age Recommendation: 13 to adult
No previous robotics experience required.
Prerequisites: IXR’s “Learn to Solder” workshop, or basic electronics soldering experience. Come in to IXR on any Sunday, 1-5pm, for Soldering Sundays! Learn basic soldering with us. (Kits start at $7)
This class will be followed by Robotics II Bootcamp on June 2nd!
