YTA recently held the fifth installment in a series of seven National Science Foundation Tech Workshops. Twelve CMSD students participated in a two-day remote control workshop at Tri-C’s Advanced Technology Training Center. Students learned how to build and program a remote control that they then used to operate Arduino robots. Students first participated in a lesson on coding, and then applied what they learned to their remote controls and robots that they later got to take home.
YTA will be hosting two more NSF Tech workshops this semester. The next workshop will cover quadcopters and will be held Saturdays May 6 and May 13. Students will get to learn about the make-up of quadcopters and “First Person View” (FPV) flying techniques during the two-week workshop, while also taking home their very own quadcopter and tablet. YTA will then hold a second quadcopter workshop on Saturdays, May 20 and June 3. For more information, or to sign up a student, please contact Hayley Brown at Hayley.firstname.lastname@example.org.
