Class Notes: 10/7/2017 … Program for PastaBot Remote Control!

Hello Robot Geniuses!

Today we are going to add remote controls to our PastaBots! Here is the code we will be covering in-class.

You can get the entire library from here.

In case you want to play with the code and/or reinstall yourself, you can find instructions on how to install libraries here. Note that you will need the Arduino IDE first. There are versions for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.

Full instructions will be hosted on GitHub as soon as Alex finishes writing them.

You can find the Arduino IDE on this page.

The PastaBot library is licensed GNU GPLv3! 🙂

See you at the PGA Island Club in Port Saint Lucie, Florida!

Welcome to Fall 2017

Robotic’s Class Schedule Fall 1

Fall class costs $75.00 for tuition, plus a $25.00 lab/materials fee. If you cannot attend all of the classes, here are the fees to attend them separately. The base price for each class is $15.00 (for 3 hours) plus $5.00 lab fee. The materials lab fee coves the price of the price of class supplies.
NOTE: Students who didn’t attend the Summer class will need to pay an extra $30.00 for the base robot.
*I need to know ahead of time exactly which classes that students will attend so I will have the correct number of parts!  Please!!  🙂
