Who tricia treacy, Ashley Pigford

In this workshop, participants will construct simple, robotic, drawing machines from a kit of parts provided and program them to draw/write letters. No programming experience is needed, only an interest in robots, open-source programming and the written alphabet. The intention of this workshop is not only to learn basic open-source hardware and software skills, bit more importantly, how to use these as tools to affect the experience of language. Robots are open-source and designed by the instructor, consisting of the following: —10-inch, circular, laser-cut chassis —motors —wheels —batteries —switch —Arduino-style micro-controller —Arduino-style motor driver —Sharpie (marker/pen)
