Sumobot Workshop 2013
Friday night Oct 4th 7pm - 10pm (probably later)
Limited to 10 students!

During this workshop you will be learning how to and soldering a "BaxterBot" board. The Baxterbot board is a circuit board I created this summer for Kentucky Country Day school (where I work). This board is basically a programmable Arduino with a motor controller, buzzer, tri-color LED, sensor headers and battery power system built in.
You will receive:
- BaxterBot circuit board and components for board
- Ultrasonic sensor
- 2 line sensors
- AA Battery holder
- wires to connect things
- 2 gearmotors
During the workshop, I expect we will finish the circuit board and program it for basic sumobotting. You will have to build a chassis and wheels for the sumo and mount it all so it works. We have a laser cutter, 3d printer, hand tools, scrap wood, hot melt glue and other supplies needed to finish your bot. You will need to bring 6 AA batteries to power your bot.
I will be at the LVL1 meetings on 10/8, 10/15 and 10/22 to help folks finish their bots for the 4th annual Sumobot Tournament!
Sign up, I promise it will be fun!
