tips to improve productivity

Two Tips to Help Your Productivity

Liz here with your weekly Learn Robotics article. This week’s topic is going to be a little different than the previous few weeks; rather than a technical or robotics tutorial, I’m going to talk about how to improve your productivity if you’re used to working on a computer. There are lots of distractions when you […]

Program Arduino IR Remote to Control a Mobile Robot

Program Arduino IR Remote to Control a Mobile Robot

If you liked my article on Controlling an Arduino Mobile Robot using a Bluetooth Keyboard, then you’re in for a real treat! This week’s article will be focused on using an Infrared (IR) sensor to control the Arduino Robot using a TV remote. Before we get started, let’s learn about Infrared signals and sensors, and […]

four steps to writing an Arduino program

Four Steps to Writing an Arduino Program

Are you looking for a quick way to learn Arduino? We have a lot of beginners who visit the site looking for a complete, yet easy-to-understand guide on how to write Arduino programs. I wrote this tutorial to help people build Arduino programming skills in about 15 minutes. Read through this guide, follow the steps, […]

light following arduino robot using photoresistors

Light Following Arduino Robot using Photoresistors

In this article, I will show you a quick and easy way to attach a light sensor to your robot to follow or avoid light. But first, how will we detect light? We will be using photoresistors to determine brightness. A photoresistor, or photo cell, is a light detecting resistor (LDR). Photoresistors act just like […]

buy an Anet A8

Before you buy an Anet A8, read this!

Are you in the market for a 3D printer? Did someone tell you (a forum, a video, a review, etc) to pick up an Anet A8? In this article, I’m going to outline my thoughts on the Anet A8 3D printer. I picked up my Anet A8 about a year ago, and it’s definitely been […]

create a budget for your robotics program

Create a Budget for your Robotics Program

Are you trying to create a budget for your robotics program? Are you uncertain how much money to factor into your program? Then this article is for you. In this article, I reveal the Robotics Budget Template that I use to create robotics budgets for schools and organizations. But, first, let me introduce some expectations […]

how to solder a digital clock project

How to Solder a Digital Clock Project

I’ve always been fascinated by technology, specifically robots (hence why I started Learn Robotics). And one of the critical things about being good at robotics, is becoming good at a variety of skillsets. I speak a lot about how robotics is an interdisciplinary subject that touches on all aspects of mechanics, electronics, and programming. Therefore, […]

how to start a robotics program

How to Start a Successful Robotics Program

Have you been handed the task to launch a new robotics program, improve an existing robotics class, or incorporate robotics & STEM in your classroom? Are you a teacher or educator plagued by the mysteries of robotics & how to teach it? When I work with schools and teachers, I’m often confronted by confusion: confusion […]

teach a electronics class without computers

Teach an Electronics Class Without Computers

With a little planning, you can easily host an electronics class without using computers. At least once a month, I have someone ask me, “how do I teach electronics and robotics classes without laptops or computers.” While you might think it’s next to impossible, I’ve developed a comprehensive set of lessons around simple circuits and […]

How to Power Your Arduino Mobile Robot

How to Power Your Arduino Mobile Robot

We’ve all gone through it. We’ve built an awesome robot with all sorts of features, but now the time has come to detach it from our computers and run some tests.  You think you’re all set, ready to go, but then you realize, wait… what about power? If you’ve forgotten to add a battery pack into […]

Arduino LCD using Sensor Shield V5

Arduino LCD using Sensor Shield v5

Welcome back to another LR tutorial! In this article, I will show you how to configure your Arduino LCD using Sensor Shield V5. Set aside 30-45 minutes, and you’ll be well on your way to displaying data from your Arduino or Sensors. In my Youth Robotics classes, we use Arduino Mobile Robots. I wanted to include […]

Toys for Tots Fundraiser Results

The results are in, and we did it! With your help, together we raised over $75 in donations and are able to donate over 20 toys. Not bad for a 3 week fundraiser! All of the toys will be donated to Toys for Tots in Columbus, GA. Because of you, some lucky, and well-deserving children […]

how to create a sustainable robotics program

How to Create a Sustainable Robotics Program

Are you starting a Robotics Program? Do you have an existing robotics program that seems to be “dull” or “outdated”? In this article, I will outline some of the critical points to creating a sustainable robotics program, specifically for Middle and High schools. One of the biggest questions I get from teachers and organizations, alike, […]

Vex Pick and Drop with Arduino

Hack your Hexbug with Arduino Control

Hack your VEX Pick & Drop with Arduino Control I had this really cool idea to make the VEX Pick & Drop kit “automated” by incorporating a motor on the crank shaft. Rather than manually control the arm movements, we’ll program an Arduino Nano (aff. link) to make the system move. If you haven’t already […]
