In this workshop you will build a robotic arm completely from scratch and then program it using an Arduino and Raspberry-Pi. The session will alternate between learning  and building,  and through this process give you an understanding of modern robotics.

By the end of this session, you will:

  • Have a basic understanding of programming an Arduino and connecting various sensors and motors together

  • An overview of Raspberry-Pi

  • An intuitive understanding of electricity and current

  • Knowledge of basic electrical components like breadboards, resistors, capacitors, potentiometers, LEDs, servo motors and PWM signaling

  • Get an introduction to 3D Printing and 3D Design

You will receive a box of supplies upon arrival, containing more than fifty components, which will be used for learning and for building the robot arm.  Once built, you can choose to purchase and take home your built robot.


Social Distancing Policy For In-Person classes

We take the utmost care to ensure a maximally safe setup. ​The sessions are designed for individual learning and not group activity. 


  • A mask is mandatory at all times with nose and mouth securely covered

  • The instructor will be 15 ft away while teaching, with a large screen TV projecting the build steps on the instructor's desk with high magnification to make the steps crystal clear.

  • Extra cross-ventilation forced air through front to back of building to ensure constant fresh air

  • No more than 6 attendees per session, with 8ft distancing between every individual desk (ask us about private/exclusive sessions for your family!)

  • Gloves, hand sanitizer, lysol wipes will be provided on every desk

  • Desks and chairs are always completely wiped down between sessions
