Series: Media Smart Libraries
Speaker(s): Workshop: RI Computer Museum
This workshop aims to explain basic concepts of robotics. Working in teams, participants will learn coding using a Raspberry Pi to instruct a simple robot to move objects in construction challenges. The Pi programming environment allows you to do many things with a tiny credit-card-sized computer! Participants will also learn about programmable electronics for making lights blink, motors run and a lot more. Learn how to easily duplicate this workshop in your own library as a STEM/Maker activity. The workshop promises to be easy for beginners, challenging for experienced programmers and fun for everyone!
This workshop is part of the Media Smart Libraries program which was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services Grant # LG-07-14-0045-14 and awarded to the URI Graduate School of Library and Information Studies.
