A taste of mechanical, electrical and control algorithms!

Taught by Victor Leung, MIT Design Computation Group | 5-7 PM, Wednesday, October 5 | Cohort Classroom 13

This Wednesday, DManD is excited to announce be hosting its 7th CodeKitchen: Simple Robots.

Robotics is the branch of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science that deals with design, construction and control. In this workshop we will build a simple autonomous robot with sensors and motors and explore the implications in different control algorithms. This workshop is suitable for students with little background in robotics. We will hold a competition after class with prize for the fastest control algorithm.

Want to participate?  Please reserve a spot by filling in the sign-up form (space will be limited to 20 ).  No prior programming or technical experience is required.

Everyone is welcome, and refreshments will be served.

Hope to see you there!

The CodeKitchen Team

 

Originally founded at MIT in 2013, CodeKitchen  has sought to cultivate learning environments “where everyone can be a teacher, and a beginner.” This means no expertise is required; only a keen interest in design and technology. Our goal is to cultivate a vibrant and supportive community of makers, designers, scientists, and researchers, by crowd-sourcing, hands-on, peer-to-peer, learning labs, drawing from cutting edge topics in design and technology.
