Gulf Coast Robotics Sports 2 October 2009
July 11th was the second Gulf Coast Robot Sports event at the Robot MarketPlace in Bradenton, FL. Fifteen robots showed up for a chance at one of the prizes, totaling over $150.
I’m often asked for a shopping list for the tools and technologies essential to a high school level robotics program. It’s a tough question because, well, it depends. It depends on the type of robot we’re talking about: crawler, quadcopter, or arm, for example. It also depends on whether the goal is to learn programming techniques, hardware design and construction, or a combination of the two.
