STEM Learning Activity – Arbot Robotics
The Arbot is an innovative and highly engaging robot made for teachers by teachers. It’s simple design and almost limitless opportunities for expansion make it an ideal mechanism to both teach beginning students text-based coding and extend advanced students interests in Mechatronics. The Arbot incorporates Arduino, an inexpensive open-source electronics platform which is used internationally at universities to teach electronics, robotics and computer science. The Arbot package includes electronic hardware, software and sample code and troubleshooting media as well as extensive teaching support for use in Stage 4 Mandatory Technology and Stage 5 iSTEM.
For teachers and students, the learning curve is steep when entering into the world of mechatronics and text-base coding. Training of staff in the Arbot platform is highly recommended before implementation and Camden Haven High School is available to offer training for interested groups.
