Day 1- Bhuj Workshop

IMG-20160419-WA0004

I would be working with grades 9 to 12 of The White Eagle School, Bhuj over the next four day period, starting 11th April. I was anxious as well as excited. Anxious whether I will able to handle it smoothly and initiate the students into electronics and robotics with as much engagement and excitement as I myself have. Excited also I was – to see how the dynamics of self learning, to see how tinkering with robotics will take students like myself into a whole new world.

Arduino Obstacle Avoider

This was one of my first few projects in Arduino. Making an Obstacle Avoider robot was a challenge in itself that introduced me to new components and a thing called “module” which is very different from basic electronics like LED or DC motors. In fact, while researching on the same, I learnt there are two ways of making Obstacle Avoider:

  1. One using Arduino and Arduino modules.
  2. Another using electrical components like transistors, IR sensor, motors, many, many wires and no microcontroller such as Arduino.
