Programming in Python and Robotics

Summer 2012 quarter

Richard Weiss mathematics, computer science
Preparatory for studies or careers in
computer science, engineering

We will explore programming, image processing, and AI through robotics.  The robot we will use is the Scribbler by Parallax. Students will work on a project in groups after learning the basics about the robot.  They will also learn the fundamentals of programming in Python, which is a powerful scripting language. This is ideal for students who have programmed in another language. Students will develop an understanding of the object-oriented programming paradigm, program design, and problem solving.  Python also interfaces with C, and they will learn how to write simple C programs to interface with Python.
