10 Ways Kids Can Learn About Robotics | Learning

10 Ways Kids Can Learn About Robotics | Learning | Computer Science in Middle and High Schools | Scoop.it

"From coding to stop-motion animation videos to sewing, the maker movement is becoming more and more popular with kids and adults.

Maker culture is a movement that embraces do-it-yourself tinkering with electronics and physical objects—it focuses on learning and trying out new practical skills, building a community of resources and experimenting.

Robotics and electronics are two hallmarks of the maker movement (electronics explores using electronic circuits, while robotics combines circuits, movement and sometimes software to create a machine or robot). Projects can be as simple as a making a light blink, or as involved as building an entire robot.

“Light switches, electronics [and] toys seem very closed off...The average person doesn't realize they can make or impact them,” says Jennifer Turliuk of MakerKids in Toronto. MakerKids is the world’s first and largest makerspace that’s just for kids; it offers many different maker programs for children.

“In [robotics] programs, kids start to understand how these simple machines work. They can even make their own light switch,” Turliuk says."

Water level controller using arduino

Water level controller using arduino | Computer Science in Middle and High Schools | Scoop.it

This article is a about a fully functional water level controller using Arduino. The circuit displays the level of water in the tank and switches the motor ON when the water level goes below a predetermined level. The circuit automatically switches the motor OFF when the tank is full. The water level and other important data are displayed on a 16×2 LCD display. The circuit also monitors the level of water in the sump tank (source tank). If the level in side the sump tank is low, the motor will not be switched ON and this protects the motor from dry running. A beep sound is generated when the level in the sump tank is low or if there is any fault with the sensors.

Make a Custom Membrane Keypad for Arduino

Make a Custom Membrane Keypad for Arduino | Computer Science in Middle and High Schools | Scoop.it

I decided to make my own Membrane Keypad. There are a few tutorials on building membrane keypads. Most of the DIY keypads I’ve found don’t seem like they would be all that reliable nor resilient. I’m not looking for something to last forever but it should last long enough to warrant the 30 minutes of work needed to make it.

“ Librarians always want to know how to get the best “bang for their buck” because it’s always important to stretch a budget as far as possible. With all the robots rolling around these days, you might wonder which Bot is the best for you and your patrons. Here’s a comparison chart to help you decide (Since this table might be difficult to read, so you can also read this chart in Googledoc format, but make sure you scroll to the end of this post to see my favorite robots!)”

Ensil's curator insight, December 31, 2015 10:47 AM

There are many reasons for the emergence of collaborative robots: companies are using them because they can be placed alongside humans in small-spaced electronics assembly lines, because they are affordable and easily trainable, and because they are flexible to handle short runs, repetitive and boring jobs, and ergonomically challenging tasks
