CAS Community | Raspberry Pi Junkbot

CAS Community | Raspberry Pi Junkbot | Robots in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The junkbot project is about creating robots made from junk. This is an initiative to introduce environmental sustainability, engineering and computing to students.

This resource Raspberry Pi Junkbot looks at the next stage combining the junkbot with a Raspberry Pi to make the system programmable.

A modified version of Scratch (ScratchGPIO) is used to control a motor. An example of drawing junkbot is shown with the code.

Level:Beginner / Intermediate

Teaches: Programming, control of a physical device.
