Class Experience

I have been involved in computer science and robotics for 5 decades, having hand built my first robot as a teenager back in the day where parts had to be manually hard wired from scratch. In my career I have touched on many hardware / software disciplines and have several patents to my name in this field. This gives me a unique view on hardware and software as two parts of a whole end product. 
In addition to the technical skills I have spent decades explaining difficult computer science concepts to non-technical crowds including investors, administrators, salesmen, etc.  This provided a solid basis for teaching these skills in an age appropriate manner. 
My computer science classes bring these two (technical abilities and teaching experience) together into a fun, exciting hands on experience that is age appropriate. 
I have worked with this particular Yahboom robot for about 4 years now, and successfully taught basic robotics and some fairly advanced concepts) with this robot to hundreds of students. 
Each week there will projects to complete and expand upon, and the results brought back the subsequent week. 
It is a requirement to have completed the beginner robotics class, and come to this class with a working yahboom smartcar robot built in that class.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
