START:CODE introduces advanced robotics class

startcodeJust announced: START:CODE has expanded its program to include a robotics lab — a class that will take kids deeper into programming and engineering than your standard LEGO robotics class or club.

Like a typical entry level robotics class, the START:CODE class will have students put together a robot from a kit. But the middle-school and high-school students who take this class also will learn about the embedded systems inside the robot parts — and inside all kinds of microelectronics — and how they work. In addition, the students will use the programming languages Python and C to program their robot.

The instructor is a professional software developer and a designer of embedded systems robotics.

The class will meet Wednesday evenings, beginning Oct. 2, at the START:CODE location in Decatur / Toco Hills. Registration is open now.
