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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.
