This course provides a great introduction to the world of robotics and electrical engineering. Throughout the week, students will use a combination of mechanical, electrical and software engineering, learn how to design, assemble and program a robot, using an Arduino microcontroller. Students will move from basic programming and electronic circuit concepts to building the robot and exploring each sensor and actuator’s capabilities by programming with Arduino to perform automated tasks. The week finishes with a selection of two final challenges: a maze navigation course and a balloon pop battle!

IMPORTANT: This course is Part 1 of the DMA "Robotics & Engineering Academy" 
Extend your learning across this two-course Academy and develop a deeper understanding and skill in this career pathway by taking the Part 2 course "Build and Program a Laptop with Python."
