What Our Users Say
I love your Intro to Robotics Course. The lessons are very detailed. And the combination of video and reading was really good. I had a few problems and Eric was alway available for email questions (not sure he sleeps). I have just started going through it for the second time. Thank you so much. Two thumbs up. Best kit/class ever.
This course has been amazing. I decided to purchase it as I have always wanted to learn robotics. I am a mechanical engineer so have a good handle on electrical concepts and can confirm the course notes are excellent. The hardware is conveniently packaged up which streamlines the lessons and the quality of the components seems good with no faulty components so far. I have also had a lot of support from the staff when I've hit a snag. Can't recommend enough.
I would highly recommend this course because it provides excellent written instructions along with quality components. The written material is a wealth of information that is clearly designed to be used as a resource for any future electronics project. I see the written material and the wide range of components to be a worthwhile investment in my robotics future. Additionally, the support line is extremely responsive.
I am halfway through Level B and am very impressed with the excellent quality of electronics instruction! As a retired IT professional and former Computer Science instructor I feel qualified to also evaluate the programming instruction. It is...excellent as well! Both the electronics and programming instruction are easy to follow for students and adults alike and is well-structured in a "one step builds upon another" approach. Highly recommend!
The lessons and exercises are well-paced, informative, and delivered in a friendly and inviting manner.
I had previous electronics and programming experience, so the first lessons were very easy for me, but still informative, and worthwhile as preparation for the more advanced lessons. I think a good balance has been struck between the amount of theory and practical experience.
My overall experience using this program has been wonderful. I have enjoyed learning both the hardware and software side of constructing projects, including the final project, the robot.

RFID Reader Project
In Lesson B-11 you will learn to use an RFID reader in your projects. Once it's installed in your circuit, you will write the code to program the access cards and then you can tie access to other functions in a project such as keeping a data log or activating an alarm.
Raspberry Pi Camera Project
Gather real time data and write programs to react to it. Lesson C-12 will teach you to use a Raspberry Pi camera. Later on in the course, you'll use those skills to install the camera on the robot and create decision making programs based on what the robot sees.
Install and Configure a Robot's Motors
Building a fully mobile and programmable robot means getting those motors installed and calibrated so the robots movements can be accurately controlled. In Lesson D-3 you'll work through installing the motors while building the robot chassis. Later in Lessons D-10 and D-11 you'll learn to work with a motor drive IC, draw on your pulse width modulation knowledge from a previous lesson, and write the code to calibrate the motors.

Help When You Need It
Our team answers your questions
Not sure where to start on your own projects? Our courses were designed with beginners in mind.
Our courses start with the fundamentals to ensure you have a solid understanding of how every part of a circuit works, how to write each line of code, and how to use a Rapsberry Pi in your projects.
By the time you reach the end of the Robotics Course, you'll not only have built a fully mobile and programmable robot, but you'll also have gained a strong skill set (and the equipment) you'll need to tackle your own projects.
