This six week course is for beginners and enthusiasts alike. Week by week you will work towards building your own NodeBot to take home at the end of the course. Along the way you will learn basic electronics, from components to circuitry, and the theories and principles of robotics. You’ll also become familiar with Arduinos and their role within a NodeBot.

You’ll sharpen (or develop from scratch) programming skills in JavaScript, learning how to control hardware with johnny-five, a NodeJS library. To customise your creation you’ll also learn to use 3D modelling to design custom 3D printed robot parts.

This Bits and Bots short course is for anyone who is a maker, tinkerer or robotics enthusiast!
