Course Description:

Otto is an interactive robot that anyone can make! a robot 🤖 that brings people of all ages closer to technology. Through hands-on making you learn the logical connection between mechanical components, design, electronics and code. Otto is truly open source in both hardware and software, encouraging anyone in the world to invent their own versions, adding more functions and features. Otto makes robotics easier and effective for a variety of grade levels, age groups and subjects.

Building robots is fun, easy, and can be done by nearly anyone when you have the right tools in front of you. Our course guides you through the tools and techniques you will need to get started building robots

This class was designed with the absolute beginner and children (both girls and boys)  in mind, and attempts to break down complex concepts into easy bite-sized pieces. It covers the technology you will need to know to build basic little robots that walk around, to complex robots that use microcontrollers and sensors. Join us in the wild world of robotics with Otto, where you will learn to build your own robot. It is a methodology that we have been implementing for years in workshops.

Learning Objectives:

  • Assemble your own robot.
  • Arouse interest in Otto and its entertainment possibilities.
  • Acquire transverse learning, such as environmental education.
  • Discovery of the robotics world through Otto.
  • Improve the cognitive and physical psychomotor learning.
  • Use of educational technology. 
  • Get support from the Otto Builder community.

  1. And now? I have finished this introductory course on Otto’s assembly and check-up. As soon as it comes home I will test everything I have learned – although each step will have to be reviewed again – I think
