I’ve been a member of robotics clubs for several years and an active mentor with FIRST robotics teams in the Kansas City area. I’ve noticed while helping FIRST students that there is the lack of robotics at the personal level. The FIRST robot kit of parts are too expensive for mom and dad to buy the same parts to play with at home. Also, many homeschool students don’t have access to the same level of robotics parts and resources for their studies.
Getting started with robotics doesn’t have to be overly expensive. This blog is dedicated to getting people started experimenting with robotics at home.
