The Balancing Robot Project
On this website, you will find teaching material for a robot project for middle school and high school students. The project aims at captivating students and giving them a first impression what automatic control is about – by making a small segway-style robot balance on its wheels!
Interested in knowing more? Have a look at the following videos at the bottom of this page to get a first impression!
The material contains videos, slides, lab instructions and a course overview. Keep in mind, that the version as for now is preliminary and work in progress.
