Build A Robotic Arm With Arduino and Raspberry Pi- Elite Track Part 1

Pricing For Summer Program 2024 Goes Up May 10


To attend In-Person, save by registering here to attend the entire program:



Build an advanced robotic arm completely from scratch with Arduino and Raspberry Pi,  and take it home once built!


Unlike other classes that use pre-manufactured "kits", in this class students will learn, program, and manufacture a small robotic arm from scratch. By the end of this session, each student will:


  • Have a thorough understanding of programming an Arduino and connecting various sensors and motors together
  • An intuitive understanding of electricity and current
  • Knowledge of basic electrical components like resistors, capacitors, potentiometers, LEDs, how to use a multi-meter, servo motors and PWM signaling
  • Get an introduction to 3D Printing and 3D Design
  • They will also learn some of the real-world applications of the geometry they learn at school! 
  • Each student will have brand-new hardware and non-shared equipment.


Each student will receive a box of supplies upon arrival, containing more than a hundred components, which will be used for learning and for building the robot arm. When the course is over, students are expected to take their box home for a full summer of continued enjoyment and learning. Attending Part 2 of this session is highly recommended since that is when we will add the Raspberry-Pi and Camera onto the arm and make it truly AI enabled!  The course on 3D printing and 3D design will also give the student a deep dive into how modern robots  and mechanisms are designed and created.


Social Distancing Policy

We have worked hard to create a safe setup that minimizes risk:

  • Masks are now optional

  • Reasonable social distancing will be encouraged and unnecessary huddling will be discouraged

  • We recommend each student bring their own water bottle.



None. Previous programming experience will help, but is *not* required.


What To Bring

  • Each student must bring his/her own Mac Or Windows laptop with sufficient free disk space, and administrative rights to install the Arduino IDE and other necessary utilities.
  • Chromebook will not work
  • A USB-C to USB adapter if your laptop contains only the new USB-C ports
