Robotics - Beginner Level

Difficulty: ⭐️☆☆☆☆

Description

In this course, students will learn the basics of circuitry and robotics based on the Arduino microcontroller. Elementary devices such as LEDs, buzzers, and servo motor will be covered. Students will program these devices with the Arduino microcontroller board using a simplified version of C programming.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of this course, students will learn:

  • Microcontroller programming skills with C++-based Arduino code
  • Basic electronics troubleshooting skills
  • Operation of electronic servos, buzzers, LEDS, and pushbuttons
  • Basic robot design

Requirements
