Robotics For Fun
Teaching robotics at the Chabot Space & Science Center, Jutiki Gunter realized that his pupils had few robotics-learning resources outside the classroom. He aimed to fill that gap by founding Robotics for Fun in 2004, supplying students with a year-round space where they can construct robots and enrich their mathematic and scientific skills along the way. Gunter's team of instructors fills inquisitive minds with basic design and programming know-how, as well as teaching them how to make two robots communicate and fashion a racing robot programmed to express crippling anxiety. Students enrolled in the membership program tinker on themed projects throughout the year, while attendees of the Robotics for Fun summer camp study programming languages or the fundamentals of RC-vehicle technology.
