This summer, the Pickles will be teaching a course on robotics and engineering. If you live close by and are looking to do some fun and interesting stuff relating to robotics this summer, check it out!
Dates:Monday, July 30 – Friday, August 3
Instructor: Roger Pachter
Grade Levels: 5 – 8
Status: Running/Still openings
Join members of FIRST Lego League robotics team, the Battery Powered Picklejar Heads, and learn advanced robot design techniques such as using touch and optical sensors in closed loop control algorithms, ways to methodically develop complex technical designs as a team and the delights of scientific and engineering competition. Short talks on technique will be followed by hands-on designing, programming and testing Lego Mindstorm robots. If you love a great challenge, want to work hard and learn how to build a winning team please join us. No previous Lego Mindstorm experience necessary, just a passion to learn!. Tuition is slightly higher for this program because of increased materials expenses. This is a ½ day class and will meet from 12:00noon –3:00pm
