Coding & Robotics Resources
This is a fun and creative physical computing project that opens a doorway to computational thinking concepts and practices. From brainstorming to designing, engineering and programming, students create their own interactive robots. By programming microcontrollers and various electronic and mechanical components, students make their ideas come to life. This project is an adaptation of the Lawrence Hall of Sciences Robot Petting Zoo, with an additional emphasis on 3D engineering with cardboard.
Pi Wars is a two-day, challenge-based robotics competition in which Raspberry Pi-controlled robots are created by teams and then compete in various non-destructive challenges to earn points.
Tankbot is a robot with Caterpillar tracks driven with a Raspberry Pi Zero W and the 4tronix PiConZero board. It has a servo controlled turret with an HCSR04...

The Dash & Dot robots provide an entertaining introduction to the world of programming for younger children. Having bought a set of five Wonder Pack kits for my school, I’ve been impressed with what these robots can do.
Youtube user Hknssn built a paper airplane-making machine using legos. As a last step, it launches the airplanes — a compressor shoots them about 2-3 meters off-camera — but you might have to watch the launch more than once. It happens fast!
Open Game Art is a media repository intended for use with free software game projects. Its purpose is to allow developers to easily replace programmer art with high-quality, appropriately licensed artwork. It accepts both 2D and 3D art, as well as sound effects and music.
