What kinds of robotics projects are you most interested in working on?

Individual or group projects for teens interested in technology. Could include mechanical, electronic and/or programming elements.

How would you describe your experience with robots?

Mentor various youth robotics groups throughout Los Angeles. In 2014 completed a year of coaching high-school robotics called FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), based at our own Maker/robotics workspace in West LA. The teens used Autodesk Inventor Pro for CAD and RobotC for programming. They machined custom metal parts, and built custom electronics with a platform similar to Arduino. Before that, four years coaching an active year-round robotics program in FIRST LEGO League (FLL) for ages 9 to 14, using the LEGO Mindstorms NXT.

What do you hope to gain from this Meet-up group?

Explore other robotics platforms and technology-based projects.


I'm a father of two teenage boys interested in science, tinkering, robotics, programming and LEGO.
