Virtual Training Workshop

In September 2013, the CMU CREATE Lab held and recorded a four hour Hummingbird/Arts & Bots Training workshop in Pittsburgh, PA. 

Try participating virtually! Get a Hummingbird kit and gather some craft materials, then follow along with the videos. Or, get inspired and watch the end-result: 17 robots, shown off in 12 minutes by participants. The total time participants had to build and program their robots was 90 minutes.
