Description

Be a Technology Creator Today !!! Discover the scientist in you.

# No boring theories. Start Programming from very 1st Lecture.

Are you excited to create something immediately without getting into too much subject theory which bores you? Then you have landed at the right course. 

#30 days money back Guarantee

Learn Theory while applying them

Start learning by applying the fundamentals instead of learning the long theories first. The course has been deliberately kept short to deliver outcomes quickly & we have knowingly skipped few concepts which are not necessary while starting but are learning barriers to start enjoying technology. You will learn concepts to understand the electronics or science behind every item, Circuit designing & building circuits from scratch, logic building for programming Arduino but be assured that you will start building Arduino applications from the very first session. Believe me Robotics is for everyone and you are going to make it a kids stuff during this course.

  • Arduino LED Circuit Design & Control - 10 Activities

  • Arduino Motor Circuit Design & Control - 3 Activities

  • Very Simple Arduino Robot - 2 Activities

  • Sensor Circuit & Programming - 4 Activities

  • Obstruction Avoiding Robot Circuit & Programming - 2 Activities


Easy to use, learn 2 software together

You will use a Scratch based programming platform which makes it easy for the learners to start writing programs immediately. You will learn different programming concepts like for loop, while loop, if & else statements but in an easy way. You can also learn the coding & its syntax used in Arduino IDE as the software generates IDE codes too.


# Student Reviews

- This is great i love it.i wish they did this in my school because this is awesome thanks for making this. 

- Very well done. Material is easy to understand as presented. I am lookng forward to te advance courses for this subject from this instructor 

- using sketch to see how to write the program is useful 

- The pictures are very instructive. The lecture is very clear and describes the activities in full.
