PAVED Arts and Nuit Blanche Saskatoon present:
Robotic Bug Workshop w/ Stefan Scott
Saturday, September 30th, 12-4pm
AKA/PAVED Arts Event Space
This workshop is FREE for children and adults alike. You do not need to be a PAVED Arts member to attend.
During this workshop, Stefan Scott will teach how to make a battery-operated, responsive “bug”. The bug will crawl along the ground on geared wheels. It will be programmed so that its antennae act as sensors: when the bug bumps into obstacles, its antennae will send signals to the wheels to turn left or right to move around the obstacle. Each participant will be able to build and take home their own robotic bug. Stefan is a Computer Science and Robotics teacher at Aden Bowman Collegiate and will ensure this workshop is suitable for all ages.
Stefan Scott is a computer science and creative digital arts instructor who lives in Saskatoon. Ever since starting up an extracurricular robotics program three years ago, he’s been fascinated by the creative possibilities with electronics, microcontrollers, and project-based learning that is driven by computer science.
