Robotics 101

What is a robot? How do I build one? Do I need to be a hardware and software genius? In this workshop we will define some terms, talk a little about this history of robotics and cybernetics, see some cool images and videos, and then set about the task of building a simple robot from a kit. The learning goal of this workshop is simple: to crack open the door on robotics with hopes that some of the participants will decide to open it the rest of the way and learn some more.
