Intermediate mBot A - Robot Fundamental
Coding has been identified as one of the basic skills for anyone besides Reading, Writing and Arithmetic>. It is not only for people who are in technical stream, it is also important for non-technical stream as the use computers, embedded systems and Internet of Things (IoT) will touch all walks of life.
Another important competence for people today is “Maker’s skill”. It is the ability to build physical objects. Just working in the virtual world of coding is not sufficient and in-complete. The “Maker’s skill” enables one to combine software, hardware and artwork to invent.
mBot is a versatile robot for anyone to build, program and enhance. Its brain is based on an open platform Arduino processor board.
The programming of mBot is using mBlock, a user friendly graphical programming based on Scratch 2.0.
This workshop let the participants appreciate
the ease of graphical programming, experience the behaviour of robot’s sensors
and program the robot to perform autonomous tasks
10 years and above
Remarks: mBot provided SOLELY for practice during class. *Student can purchase at a discounted price after the workshop
