Event description

Description

A Brand New Workshop from @BirdBrainTech

Design, build and program an autonomous vehicle with the Hummingbird Robotics Kit! Use recyclable material to construct a vehicle that will respond to light and shadows and avoid obstacles.


Is this workshop good for beginners?

Some experience with Hummingbird Robotics is recommended. Participants will use Ardublock and Arduino programming in the workshop. No experience with either Ardublock or Arduino is necessary prior to this workshop, but some expereince with block-based languages like Scratch or Snap! would be extremely helpful.


What do I need to bring?

We'll provide the tools and construction material. You'll need to bring a laptop. If you already have a Hummingbird Kit, bring it. If you do not have a Hummingbird Kit, you can borrow one from us. Interested in purchasing a Hummingbird Kit? You can purchase one with the discount offered for this workshop and save $100!

If you bring a colleague from your district, you'll receive an extra discount on a small Hummingbird Duo Classroom Kit and save $250!
