Building and Programming Autonomous Robots (4 days): Sept 16, Sept 23, Oct 7, and Oct 14, 2017 – $40

9:00 am to 4:00 pm. In this 4-day sequence, FIU Ph.D. Student Greg Reis will teach you to assemble and program an autonomous robotic car, using the Arduino-based Elegoo UNO Project Smart Robot Car Kit. You will write code to help the robot avoid obstacles and navigate a maze. Prerequisite: At least one semester of Java, C, Python, or C++ programming. Limited to 22 participants, where registration priority is determined by the date and time we receive your registration check. The $40 nonrefundable registration fee covers parking if you do not already have an FIU parking pass.

Each pair of students will be provided a robot kit to use in class. As an alternative, you might want to purchase your own kit on Amazon.com before the workshop begins so you can take your completed kit home when the workshop ends. Register online here, write your check payable to “FIU” and send it to the following address: Robotics Workshop (Irvine), FIU School of Computing and Information Sciences, Florida International University, 11200 SW 8th St, room ECS 354, Miami, FL 33199. Please write the name of the workshop participant on the check. After your check is received, you will receive a confirmation by email. If you are a public school teacher, your registration check will be returned to you if you attend all workshop days.
