Students with previous experience in robotics will enjoy the challenge of the Arduino robot called Ardbot.  Students must have two years of experience with the NXT robots to be accepted into this class.  Students will build their Ardbot from basic components including a chassis, servo motors, arduino controller, etc.  Students will learn electronics skills to add sensors and wire the sensors and motors to connect them to the arduino microcontroller.  The students will learn a program called Modkit Arduino programming environment in order to program their Ardbots.
