What is RoboSlam?
RoboSlam is an ultra low-cost robot building workshop for beginners using real electronic components. Our aim is to create a recipe for a €10 robot that’s easy to build and easy to teach others to build.

Ted, Damon, and I have been meeting over the past couple of days to evaluate past events, brainstorm strategies, and plan for upcoming workshops. We enjoy remembering recent Slams….
Things really got fun once all the circuitry, programing, structural components, and body casings all synched and we stared testing out our nearly-fully-functioning robots and working out the final kinks. Success!
On the second day of our three-day May Slam-a-rama, the students learned about product and manufacturing design. They designed and started building bodies for their robots, while also taking tours. They learned about statistics, wrote essays about engineering, and toured … Continue reading
The first day of RoboSlam wrapped up with robot programming and testing. By the end of the day every robot in the room was up and running. The students did such an amazing job. Their dedication and persistence really paid … Continue reading
This is how the robot designs shaped up by the end of the week.
RoboSlam starts with an introduction to the overall robot-building process and then delves into assembling the electronic components (i.e., building the circuitry). The photos below track the progress of several groups of participants in the “Engineering Your Future” event held … Continue reading
