Introduction to Robotics using Arduino @ the Medway Library, When: October 2  - December 18; How often:  Monday evenings from 6:30-8pm; Where: Makerspace; Who: Students 12 - 17 years of age. Registration required.

We will work on projects that incorporate an Arduino controller board and other electronic components.  As part of the class, the children are taught the basic concepts of C/C++ programming and electronics required to operate an Arduino board and to build / design robotic projects. 
The goal of this session is to introduce the children to the basic concepts of engineering and computer science and to determine whether or not this is something they would be interested in pursuing again in the next session.  The second session, starting in January, will allow students to work on designing a robotic vehicle.
Open to students 12 - 17 years of age. 
Registration is required.
