Have you ever wondered how something goes from being an idea to invention to a product that can be manufactured and sold? This course will look at how engineers use the design process to improve the world around us. We will learn about circuits, mechanics, pneumatics, 3D modeling and programming. In addition to building a remote controlled robot, we will also look at programming electronics that can operate autonomously. We will use Arduino circuit kits to learn how a computer can react to real world inputs.
