Robotics with Raspberry Pi

My students need to program robots that move. We've been doing physical computing, now it's time to make moving robots with motors and motor controllers.

My Students

The typical student at MC^2 STEM High School comes from the urban Cleveland area. We are a Title I school, so all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. School is in session year round, only having breaks for 3 weeks quarterly.

STEM education is the emphasis of our curriculum.

Our curriculum is project based. This makes the lessons taught relevant to real world applications. Sometimes, though, we lack the means to provide all of the material for those projects.

My Project

The process of attaching a motor to a Raspberry Pi computer can be difficult. It requires complicated bread-boarding, and the potential for mistakes, shorts, and destroying the equipment is quite high. If my students are to learn how to program and design motor controllers we will need a dedicated piece of equipment to do so.

My students want to make a positive difference in the world.

They're studying civil rights in their social studies class. In my engineering class we're spring-boarding off of this and making robots from these motor controllers and out of the materials from my previous Donor's Choose. We will identify a civil rights issue then design and build a device that will address that civil rights issue.
