Creative Robotics with Hummingbird Electronics

Description

What is under all the plastic covers of standard, traditional robotics kits? This class merges tech and tradition in the coolest way! Students will use raw sensors and a microcontroller to design robots out of recyclable materials. Light up LEDs, sound of buzzers, move DC and servo motors and let the robot of your dreams come to life!

We will be using the Hummingbird Robotics Kit as our main platform for this program.

What is STEM? / About Us

STEM stands for "Science, Technology , Engineering, and Math". STEM encompasses fields that are considered the core technological underpinning of an advanced society. STEM Center USA was co-founded by Melissa & Lavanya Jawaharlal, sisters and mechanical engineers with a passion for promoting STEM literacy for all. The Jawa Sisters believe in exciting students about STEM through fun, hands-on experience where real, meaningful learning occurs. In our programs, the "soft skills" of developing confidence, an "I can do this" attitude, and "mistakes are the best way to learn" mentality is just as important as the "hard skills" of programming, building, and design skills. STEM Center USA programs have been recognized by Vice President Joe Biden and appeared on the "Shark Tank" in Winter 2016.
