Robotics for Youth-2: Physical Computing with Arduino

Friday, Sep 22, 2017 – Friday, Dec 15, 2017

3:30pm – 5:00pm

In this course, youth will take the skills acquired from Introduction to robotics to new levels. They will use complex sensors like capacitive touch , gyroscope and accelerometer to create projects like a fruit piano,a prototype of touch activated home lighting system.

As part of this course, youth  will enhance their creativity by working on a final project using components that were introduced in this course. The purpose of these final physical computing projects is to offer youth practical opportunities to demonstrate  self-expression, and creative problem solving. More precisely, they course will help youth acquire skills to build robotic projects like barrier avoiding robots, robots that can pick objects up and place them in a container, and with enough practice and determination youth will be able to build a drone of their own invention.

Youth are required to be knowledgeable in C++, or Java. They required to know how to use variables, loops, if conditions, and functions. If you have any questions about course requirements, please  don’t hesitate to contact us at

Who can register?
  • Any youth who have completed Introduction to Robotics with Arduino and C++.
  • Any youth who have the knowledge of C++, or Java.
