Have you ever wanted a perfect drink when no one could made it or carry it to you? Have you ever wanted to know / can build a robot? Have you ever thought to build a programmable "cocktail printer"? Are you looking for a free course to learn how to use Arduino?
If you answered "yes" to at least one of these questions, then this is the lab you were waiting for.
During the workshop a programmable Robotic Bartender useful to make any type of cocktail will be manufactured .
The workshop introduces participants to the creation of a robot through programmed electronics. On the first day an overview of Arduino and sensors, actuators and devices connected to it will be made. Also, the main functions of the programming language C will be illustrated. The second and third day will concern the design and construction of the robot through the tools and devices made available.
