Get started with Quirkbot’s coding and robotics projects into everyday teaching.
Whether you are an elementary school teacher, technology integration specialist, or librarian, this webinar is for anyone wanting to get a first look at what’s inside the Coding & Robotics with Quirkbot kit. No previous experience needed! Learn about the possibilities of assembling the Quirkbot’s hardware and the electronic components pieces with the connectors and straws.
Then create a program starting with the coding cards in Strawbees CODE together with Lindsay and Paulo. After entering their basic program, they made their way into programming the robot racer.
Applying the ideas learned from this webinar is best suited for teachers working with students ages 8-14.
Below are resources referenced in the webinar.
The kit comes with a tiny screwdriver to fit the screw inside the servo motor. This will prevent the Strawbees servo arm from falling off.
Absolutely, you can export the files. Create a program, save it as a file on your computer.
Yes exactly, easy way to share files, then import it from there or share link - go on file, share link!
Use the Quirkbot to control a Scratch program, you can combine both worlds, fun!
There is documentation in the works soon. Paulo shared an example from this Easings site. Those equations on Quirkbot are the same ones as you see here!
Currently is to sell the 360-degree rotation servo separately at this spare parts page.
Yes you can use regular/ other LEDs.
Experiment! You can’t program multiple things on one arm or leg, conflict. Let us know though.
Yes, they are in process.
Yes we do! We have an offline app for this purpose found here.
The back of the Quirkbot you have extra pins that are addressable. If you are talking about neo pixels you could but you would start needing more support components. You would need something to up the voltage. Not something to start with!
