Course Overview

Robotics and Interactivity provides students with an opportunity to create interactive experiences in the physical world. Building on content learned in Web Design I (including HTML, CSS, and Actionscript) and Web Design II (including HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, and Actionscript), Robotics and Interactivity further enhances the range of experience and skills students need to design and implement interactive experiences for various platforms and environments. This hands-on design course guides students through the concept development, fabrication, assembly, and programming of custom open-course robotics, sensor-based input devices, and output components. This course prepares students for the software-based techniques taught in Advanced Digital Media.
