ChickTech Turtle Robot Workshop 2020

It is hard for me to believe that it has been seven years since my first ChichTech.org workshop, and five years since I started with the Turtle Robot workshop.  The Open Source Turtle Robot I designed specifically for this workshop has gotten better and better.  My workshops leader skills have gotten better and better.  And this workshop was the best so far.  It was designed to introduce high school age girls to engineering, mainly electrical, mechanical, and firmware.  I tell them that engineering is all about problem solving.  The trick is figuring out which problems you like solving!

The high-light of these events is when the parents and siblings come in for a “tech show” and you get to hear the girls explain how they built and programmed the robot.  It is an amazing feat to accomplish in just a few hours.  I predict great success for these girls in what ever they decide to pursue in their lives!
