Robotics Olympics

Get your fundamentals right with this beginner robotics camp. Learn about circuits, switches and motors. Learn how to create your own end-effector mechanisms. Starting from scratch, build a robot that can play football, basketball, tennis, and run a relay race. Hold an Olympics parade and watch your robots perform!

 

PREREQUISITES

This camp is for 9 to 14 year old children. Beyond that, there are no prerequisites! Come with an open mind, leave with some great learning and an experience of a lifetime!

 

WHY SHOULD I TAKE UP THIS CAMP?

Robotics is something everyone wants to do nowadays, and why not? The idea of a walking and talking machine that can do your work for you is awesome. However, learning robotics is no fun and of no use without actually understanding every single component and concept that makes a robot. This camp takes you back the very basics of what makes a robot: building its body, building its circuitry, modifying it for specific use and understanding how it all fundamentally works.

Learning Outcomes

Basic dynamics of making a robot
Manual robotics: Components & their working principles
Manual robotics: Building Rovers, basic circuitry
Operation using DPDT switches Engineering: Concepts related to relative motion between robot
Components Engineering: conceptualizing and building drive mechanisms based on application

Skills Augmented

Critical Thinking: Can I make the correct judgements that put together the different strengths of my team to conceptualise a 3D model, create a 3D representation on a software, and print it out using the capabilities of the 3D printer given to me?
 Creativity: How can I use mechanical and electrical parts in order to design and build a robot that can move in the way I want it to?
 Problem Solving: Am I being able to troubleshoot and solve all the problems that arise while I am making my robot?
 Communication: Nothing gets done without discussion and negotiation with my team
 Collaboration: It takes great team work to envision, design and build a robot that can play sports
