How to Make a Robot

This year Tim Manasterski, roboticist, will host a 45 minute session on how to make a robot. The robot will be a simple line following bot consisting of two gearhead motors, drive and micro-controller. An infrared LED sensor array will provide the feedback for the line following and although the robot kit will come fully programmed, it will have a USB port for future modifications and customization. A line following robot was chosen for the workshop because they embody a host of robot technologies and are just plain fun to build and watch!

This workshop will cost $85, but you get to walk away with an assembled, fully functional line follower! For the workshop we only have 15 spaces, so please email us at atlminimakerfaire@gmail.com if you would like to get your name on that list!

  2. how old would you suggest the participants be?

  3. We’ve got at least one 7 year old signed up so far – they’ll probably be accompanied by an adult, so if that’s a possibility then I think 5+ would work!
