Robot Pet

5th - 8th Major


Design and build your perfect pet. Use corrugated plastic and Arduino-type microprocessors to breathe animatronic life into any robot animal you can dream up, from puppy to ladybug to dragon. Learn construction techniques and programming basics as you create legs, tails or wings, integrating servo motors to get them moving. Optimize your pet’s senses with an ultrasonic sensor as you teach it to react to the world around it. Introduce your playful pet to friends and family at the end of the session, then take home your own untethered, interactive robot.

PLEASE NOTE: This major has a $80 materials fee.
