Our Creative Tech instructor Charles Brandt will get you started on the fascinating world of robotics! The workshop will include a basic kit including an Arduino processor, basic sensors and motors to produce a functional, moving robot. Additional instruction will be provided on programming basic functions to your robot. This workshop is suitable for children ages 10 and up, and also for adults who are curious to start tinkering as well. We hope our Introduction to Robotics workshop opens up a whole new world of creativity and ingenuity for you!

About Charles Brandt

 Charles Brandt worked for over ten years making video games before he moved to Japan to teach. In Fuji, Japan, he founded a maker club to teach people of all ages about using technology and science to enhance their skills and create new things. He recently returned to San Francisco where he continues his work to teach people about making through his workshops. Charles has a master’s degree in Entertainment Technology from Carnegie Mellon University, and currently works as  a virtual reality software developer. While teaching in Japan, Charles taught at a local high school as well as a special needs school. Charles’ introduction to using tools and technology to make things is rooted in his upbringing on a farm, where he used to watch his father do woodworking. Upon discovering the Maker’s Movement in the Bay, Charles started participating in workshops and along the way became an active maker, and carried that passion with him to Japan. Charles explains, “In Japan I was a bit bored because I lived on the edge of town near the tea fields and had to invent my own fun. I started developing projects and got two grants to start the maker club. The club was slow at first but it started growing and it became quite popular. Workshops we did included: metal etching, making rubber stamps with a laser, 3D photography, virtual reality with Google Cardboard, mushibots, light photography, water calligraphy, 3D printing, giant bubble making, and 3D scanning.” We hope to bring many more enriching and engaging workshops to the Center and help spark imagination and inspiration to our community through our Creative Tech Workshops with Charles!
