A crew of TX/RX Members (Cody Jones, Wanjun Zhang, Roland von Kurnatowski) spent two days teaching robotics to a local group of middle-schoolers over spring break. It was a really fun course that taught the basics of arduino and then built upon that knowledge to program a line follower robot. The whole two days culminated in the students competing by racing their robots against each other. The course was taught at Young Men's Preparatory Academy and was in conjunction with Kids Xplore Inc, another 501(c)3 non-profit that seeks to provide technology and science education and experiences to children. The project was funded by Schlumberger. More to Come!
