Home /  Courses And Programs / Futures: Intermediate Robotics with JavaScript

Learn to program robots while learning the popular JavaScript language in order to prepare for the careers of the future.


We will start with a review of JavaScript, robotics, and DDE, and then explore the challenges of programming in the real world. Students will use the popular coding language JavaScript to write programs to make robots interact with the world in meaningful ways. Students will use OpenJSCAD to design and (optionally) print parts for robots. Students may also gain practical experience with hands-on activities including programming an Arduino compatible bot (materials fee). This class builds on the foundational skills acquired in Introduction to Robotics with JavaScript.

What You Will Learn
