Build a rolling robot with an Arduino Uno microcontroller. Using one of our supported kits below, just follow the clear, step-by-step instructions and illustrations in the beginner-friendly text, Robotics with the BOE Shield-Bot for Arduino. This text was written with hobbyists, robotics summer camps, and grade 7-12 classrooms in mind. Paired with a supported robotics kit, it can be used as a California A-G approved elective course; contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
The assembled and programmed robot will be able to navigate by touch, by light, or by infrared distance detection. Each chapter introduces new STEM skills the areas of programming, electronics, robotics, and engineering. A set of questions, exercises, and projects with solutions are included at the end of each chapter. For additional teacher resources, email email@example.com.
