Part 3 – Making simple hinges from sheet metal:

Part 4 – Making a servo motor mount

Part B – Electronics 

     1. Pick up a kit


  •  List of all things in the Electronics Kit here.
  • Note the risks to your personal laptops when working with the Arduino boards here (pdf)
  • Your first time working with programming or looking at code?   Look here for some starter advice:

2.  Watch and do the following videos:
