Take a look at some of the projects covered in the workshop and get in touch to reserve your spot. Registration website open, see below

Workshop Projects.

Hydroponics, Home Monitoring and Control, Arduino Bluetooth Car Control, Line Follower Robot, Gesture Control, autonomous robots, etc.


The workshop will cover six concepts required for understanding robotic design, Introduction and Basics, Hardware Programming, Inputs & Outputs, Sensors, Communication, Robots.

Introduction and Basics.

This section will focus on basics of electrics and electronics. Students will understand the concept of current, voltage, power, digital representation, etc. Individual tasks to measure and regulate current, voltage and power will be demonstrated through hands-on experiments.

Hardware Programming.

This section will introduce the students to fundamental of hardware programming using Arduino Programming Language. Arduino programming language is an objected oriented language that is used to program the “Arduino”-microcontroller. Students will be introduced to the syntax and semantics. Tasks to effectively apply loop, condition statements will be demonstrated.

Inputs & Outputs.

Introduce students to concepts to read and write analog, digital and time-varying signals. Tasks to read voltage levels, output on displays, etc will be implemented.


In this section, the students will explore different interface options for sensors; read and display sensor values, use sensor values to react and control actuators and motors. Tasks to read sensor data, output on displays, control of motor position and speed, etc. will be implemented.


Introduce students to concepts to wired and wireless communication. Explain concepts of RF and BLE communication, wired and wireless protocols, etc. Tasks to read and write sensor (accelerometers, lux sensors) using wired and wireless communications will be implemented.


Students will assemble and control a mini robot/rover from scratch. Develop a robot controller from scratch, use of sensors for navigation, control of robot/rover using mobile apps, development of mobile apps, autonomous navigation, etc.
