Master S has been part of CoderDojo Altona North for a few years, has worked through block programming, tried his hand at electronics but what he really loves is designing and building games with Scratch and the Kittenbot Meowbit board. Master S recently ventured into building his Arduino robot based on the Otto DIY Biped Robot project. I picked up the parts for the Otto DIY Biped robot from Ebay and thought that Master S would need some handholding to build the robot but i was wrong. Master S used the tutorials at Learning. KidzCanCode / Otto DIY Biped Robot to build the entire robot on his own. You can see a short video of the robot in action.
These last few weeks Master S has been focussing on integrating a Bluetooth module into the robot so that he can control the robot remotely over the phone. This will require Master S to integrate the relevant Bluetooth modules into the robot, build an andriod application using MIT’s App Builder and then test things out in class working closely with our volunteers.
