4001 - Introduction to Control

This series of activities introduces the idea of control and explores movement with the JackBord through the use of RC Servos and Drive Motors. This series consists of 13 hands-on and interactive activities.

Coding

More than ever, students will create physical and interactive projects that incorporate small circuits, the command line, and moving objects. Because of the nature of the activities, students often find control to be the most exciting part of the JackBord.

By working through the activities in order, each of which builds upon the previous one, students will become familiar with RC servos and drive motors as they introduce movement to their JackBords. Control is the final subject taught before robotics, which will bring together all the elements we have learned thus far.
