Program Robots with JavaScript

 

We are on the verge of a robotics revolution! Students will learn to program robots using the popular language JavaScript which in turn will prepare them for the careers of the future.
 
Students will start with an overview of robotics and automation, and then explore the challenges of programming in the real world. Students will get a crash course in the popular coding language JavaScript and use it to write programs to make a robot interact with the world in specific ways. Students will use Johnny-Five Inventor's Kit, built to use Johnny-Five JavaScript framework for Robotics and IoT devices programing, for demos and for testing student programs. Students will also complete a project of their own choosing to demonstrate what they have learned. The class offers a foundation for further studies in programming and robotics.
