The WiFi robot is the second kit you’ll receive as part of our monthly subscription program.
The age of robots is upon us. They are in our homes, in our workplace, and all around us in the form of drones, driverless cars, heavy duty machinery, etc. This project introduces you to the world of robots, the mechanics behind them, and what it takes to build a robot from scratch.
In this kit, you will learn how to build a WiFi-controlled robot and bring it to life. You will learn fundamental theory, modeling methods, hardware components, interfacing requirements, simulation and programming tools, and practical applications of robotics and mechatronics. You’ll also learn about infrared waves and create your own web server using HTML and CSS. Upon successful completion of this course, you’ll be prepared for the next kit: the WiFi light switch.
On-demand lessons: A monthly subscription to Thimble includes access to our learning portal which contains step-by-step lessons to help you build your project at your own pace. Lessons contain pre-recorded videos, pictures, and written instruction.
Live classes: A monthly subscription also includes live weekly classes taught by accredited STEM teachers. Classes are twice a week for 60 minutes and are conducted on Zoom. Live classes cover intermediate and advanced material not covered in our on-demand lessons and are a nice way to extend the life of your kit with dozens of hands-on activities . Upon subscribing, you will receive an email with instructions to sign up for live classes.
