Through this one-day workshop taught by ISTD faculty, Assistant Professor Malika Meghjani, participants were taught the fundamentals of simple programming using Ardunios to code a simple differential drive robot. They will also develop critical thinking when they programmed their robot to solve a maze. Towards the end of the workshop participants race their maze-solving bots in a robot showdown to win exciting prizes.
