Would you like to add engaging, interactive projects to your engineering classroom without intimidating students?  Do you want to introduce concepts such as system modeling, controls, robotics, and image processing? 

This webinar will discuss how the Arduino Engineering Kit provides a turnkey solution that can be integrated into your engineering classroom.  The kit includes an Arduino MKR1000, custom designed shields, and all the other components necessary for building three projects: 

  • A self-balancing motorcycle that maneuvers itself on varying terrain and remains upright using a flywheel for balance

  • A mobile rover that navigates between reference points and moves objects with its forklift

  • A drawing robot that takes a reference drawing and duplicates it on a whiteboard 

The kit includes access to online learning materials that guide students through the process of programming each project, teaching important engineering concepts along the way.  Instructors can incorporate the projects in their courses and extend or customize the learning materials to suit their needs.

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
