Teen SRP - Ranger: Lunar Lander Robot

"The Last soft-landing on the Moon by NASA was in 1972 during the Apollo 17 maned lunar landing mission.  To prepare for Apollo, robotic space craft equipped with scientific instrumentation studied the moon from 1962 to 1968.  We will program our Ranger to provide photographic coverage of the luanar surface."

"This workshop aims to explain and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing. Students will learn basic concepts of robotics and, working in teams, they will learn coding to instruct a simple robot to move in construction challenges.

A big part of the workshop is hands-on practice using a Raspberry PI. The Pi programming environment allows you to do many things with a tiny credit-card-sized computer. The set-up is easy for beginners, challenging for experienced programmers, and fun for everyone!"


Presented by Dan Berman of the Rhode Island Computer Museum.
