McAuliffe-Circuits, Arduino Coding, & MBots

McAuliffe-Circuits, Arduino Coding, & MBots

Learn to Code Arduino circuit boards while driving mBot robots or building circuits with breadboards and Arduino Redboards. Coding will be in Arduino (a C based language), line coding, as students learn how to control LEDs, motors, servos, sound elements (piezo) and sensors. Additional circuit activities, based on student project selections, may include light-up greeting cards, 3D papercrafts, circuit board games using the Micro:bit circuit board, or programmable wearable Lilypad circuit boards with sounds and lights (e‐Textiles costume hacking – these can be sewn into other everyday or special occasion clothing). The mBots, SparkFun Inventors Kits, Lilypad kits are provided for in-class use. Optional Materials Fees for take-home kits. If students wish to have a kit to keep: Micro:bit circuit board cost is $25; Lilypad programmable e-textiles circuit board is $45; SparkFun Inventor’s Kits available for $95; mBots available for $75. All kits require a 2-week order timeframe.
Email Rebecca to reserve which kit you would like to purchase. The teacher will bring kits for the first few weeks of class, and orders will be placed after the first class for the take-home kits.

CSA-Robotics Coding & Lego League Prep-Q4

  • Thursdays from 3:55-5:00
  • April 4-May 23, 2019
  • Ages 8-12
  • 7 weeks, 1 day per week
  • Minimum of 8 students,
  • Maximum 15 students
  • $135/Student
  • All classes at CSA

Join us as we code and program robots of all kinds.  In our robotics classes, students will learn to code and program in different languages and apply them to different robots. Programming for the beginning levels begins with block style programming, moving into more complex customized program blocks and routines. Advanced level robotics work in line-coding real-world languages to instruct and control the robots. Each class series has exciting challenges and mini-competitions, to push our learning to applied problem-solving.

Beginners will begin learning skills with Mindstorms EV3 robots, while Intermediate students will continue deeper into using sensors and more involved coding methods. 

Robots may include any of the following, depending on ages and skill levels:  Mindstorms EV3,  Edisons, Sphero/Ollie, Boy with EV3 Robot-smallor Ozobots. We are continually exploring and adding new robots to our lineup. If students have a favorite robot of their own, they can contact us to see if we will be able to control it with our installed software and curriculum and bring their own bot to class to extend their learning.

Our Director and instructors have many years of experience in coaching competitive robotics teams and have continual knowledge about new robots, programming languages, and relevant additions to every robot class.

Slavens-Coding Games & Apps-201819Thurs-S3-4

  • Coding Games & Apps - Session 4 canceled
    • Thursdays
    • 3:10-4:10 pm
    • S3-$144/student, Jan 21-March 18, 9 classes

    • Grades 1st-5th

    Coding games and apps is a class for 7-11 year olds to learn coding, while building something fun. Age appropriate lessons will animate your student’s mind and get them excited about coding by teaching them to build their own games or apps!  In this programming camp, we will use animation software and basic block-based coding to develop a video game unique to each student’s imagination. Students will work on computers with a block command syntax, learning how to build characters and backgrounds, animate actions, levels, timers, interactions with characters, and more. Software varies, including several programs that build incrementally on students’ prior experience and knowledge. If your older student is more advanced, we will step them up to more challenging line code introduction to JavaScript or Python. Challenge your student to create a game or an app that even you can’t beat, and bring the learning home!
