New advancements in microcontroller technology, and their interface with Lego blocks, provide a new opportunity for self-paced labs for robotics education where students build small robot devices, such as an arm, to reinforce topics covered in lectures. With these tools, students will also develop skills in self-education while exploring concepts relevant to Engineering and Computer Science that go far beyond robotics.

The lab is accompanied by the 16-311, Introduction to Robotics course.
