The FCC in USA is about to vote to get rid of the net neutrality, letting ISP's censor and throttle websites, and charge extra fees. This would allow ISP's to throttle this site, when they don't like the idea of every student learning about robotics, technologies and generally how to think.

The FCC will end net neutrality on Dec 14th if we don't convince Congress to stop them. Join the Protest and Contact Congress to save net neutrality.

If you are not from USA you should also be alarmed. Similar policies are already in the process of implementation in the other 59 countries in which FLLCasts.com is used. We should fight for our Internet freedom regardless of where we are from.

Arduino Basic Course. Who is it for?

This is a course for beginners, but the tasks would be interesting and for more intermediate students. We do not expect any previous knowledge from you except for how to divide numbers and use a computer.

If you have previous experience with Mindstorms EV3 or VEX or other robotics sets you could learn a lot from the tasks provided.

English

This is course for complete beginners. We do not expect you or your students to know anything except for how to work with a computer, how to multiply and divide numbers and basically that's it. But if you are familiar with robotics kits there are plenty of good and more complex tasks that you could solve and learn a lot. With the course we are trying to make a jump. Most of our students are currently familiar with Lego Mindstorms EV3 and NXT versions. This course is for a slightly different concept. This course is for devices that you can build yourself at school or at home. The course is built for a group of students working together in a class. Each two students have at least one set with which take to work with. But it is even possible for each student to have it's own set. There are videos, text instructions, source code programs, different schemes that you can download and use. They are somewhere below the video. Most importantly there are tasks that the students should move through. Completing the tasks is very very important because this is how learning actually happens. By doing. If you have difficulties with specific tasks we would try to address them in the comment sections below each video and probably build new videos explaining the solutions. So let's get started and have some fun.
