Robotics and Coding Workshops for High Schools
The Department of Systems and Computer Engineering and the Carleton University Robotics Club host workshops for local high school students to explore Arduino Programming and Autonomous Robotics.
Students work in teams of two to learn the basics of Embedded Systems programming. Students will learn simple programming skills and also assemble simple circuits using the kit to gain an understanding of interfacing with the real world. Experiments will use switches and other sensors as inputs and various output devices such as LEDs, 7-segment displays and motors. This workshop is intended as a precursor to the Autonomous Robotics workshop which also uses an Arduino system. No programming experience is necessary.
These two workshops will help your students who want to compete in robotics competitions such as VEX or FIRST and hopefully inspire them to enter the Engineering Field. Students register online and are responsible for parental consent and transportation to Carleton. Note that both of these workshops typically run from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and include a free lunch. The workshops will take place in Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism room 510, click here for a campus map. If you have any questions, feel free to email ODEng@carleton.ca.
Thank you so much for your time!
Wishing you the best,
