Robotics is both a theoretical and practical discipline. Therefore, a significant portion of the learning in this class must occur outside the class. Homework assignments will refine the skills you need to control your robot, while hands-on experimentation in the laboratory gives you the ability to design and build a working robot. As a student, become involved in the class! Rather than passively attending lectures, involve yourself in the learning process of struggling with homework, designing and building a robot. The rewards of seeing your own creation move about are incredible!
