MTRAS Robot Build Workshop--MOVED FROM JAN to FEB 2022 due to Covid

Needs a location

MTRAS Bot Competitions for Engineering Day!
For the January Workshop, we will host a MTRAS Group Build! This kit will be used for competitions such as sumo battles, line following and quick trip competitions during the February Engineering Day event.
Bot Details
We've incorporated an Arduino Nano due to it's small size, yet big I/O count. With the addition of a Breakout board, all pins are easily accessible and Servo-friendly. We ditched standard batteries and opted for a 5000mAh Power Bank which includes a USB charging cable and power LED status. The USB cable doubles as the programming cable. Two Continuous Rotation servos for drive to get builders rolling quickly and easily. A small breadboard allows you to quickly and easily prototype. 3mm Holes line the perimeter of the board to allow you to add components. The initial kit will come with a line following board for an upcoming line following competition.
Members will have the option to pick what color frame, breadboard and wheels they want. Note we have limited quantities so you'll be asked a second color choice just in case.
We are selling the kit AT COST. Actually we're losing money if you factor in the time it takes to design, build a curriculum, make the parts (3D printing, Laser cutting etc) and kit it all together. The kit costs $34.99 plus 1¢ for s/h . We realize that it's not the cheapest kit out there, but we put an emphasis on coming up with something easy to build and expandable that doesn't take days to put together. In fact, this kit should take less than an hour to get moving.
Reserve Ordering
Limited quantity! While we have the means to build more, we are capping the first run at 10. This gives us a manageable number of participants to plan a thorough workshop.
Cutoff is Friday, February 17th.
We build Saturday February 19th during our workshop time. Please, if you purchase a kit make sure you can make the Workshop. There will be more kits available as we plan new workshops so don't worry if you can't make this one.
