Abstract

Title: MAKER: A One Hour Robot  Abstract:  The paper outlines a simple robot design that uses a 3D printer, two servo motors, and an Arduino board to build a robot for less than $40. Plans are provided with details that permit use in classroom projects and laboratory work. The 3D printer is used to make two wheels and a chassis. The chassis has features to support the servo motors, Arduino board, and a 9V battery. The first software example is suitable for K­12 outreach activities. More advanced examples include low cost light sensors for cat and mouse games. The presentation will include a live demonstration.
