Hone your skills at basic robot building. You’re invited to join Hackaday for a Beginner Robotics Workshop on Saturday, May 12.
The Hackaday Prize is now on to its second entry challenge, the Robotics Module Challenge, and with that Hackaday is hosting a beginner robotics workshop in San Francisco to teach anyone new to robotics enough to start their first robotics project, and make an entry to the Prize if they wish! For this workshop we are pairing with a number of local FIRST Robotics mentors and students to bring you a workshop that is both technical and accessible.
During this workshop you will get the chance to learn about one of 3 topics within robotics: programming, electronics, and mechanical design in CAD.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
