Lecturer for Robot Programming

I gave lectures and held workshops about robot programming for children between 14 and 16. I prepared a framework with a straightforward API so that users could call moveForward(), turnLeft(), and turnRight() instead of binaryRead() and binaryWrite(). Also, I wrote functions for reading the sensor data—isBlackline() and distanceToWall().

The course was successful, and already in the first workshop, the children could program robots to move randomly, not falling from the table.
