Who we are and what we do?

We are Robotárna, department of SVČ Helceletka Brno (local youth center) and we are interested in electronics, programming, and mechanical designs. Shortly we are interested in everything needed for robotics.
We have organized the Robotic Camp many times, which is designed for young people from 12 years. The attendees build their own robotic toy or the whole robot every year and they can bring it home.

Robotic Camp 2023

At the camp in 2023, participants worked on several smaller projects. The main project was the development kit ELKS, which stands for ESP Learning Kit Starter. It is an educational tool for teaching electronics and the basics of programming. We still use the kits in circles for beginners and advanced.
Instructions and documentation can be found here.

Robotic Camp 2022

At the camp in 2022, participants worked on various projects according to their preference. The projects focused on electronics, soldering, gluing, and programming. Programming was done on commercially available Micro:bits. Various games (such as Snake) were created, as well as various wireless games for multiple players.
Instructions and documentation can be found here.

Robotic Camp 2021

On 2021's camp, our participants created several toys like electronical dice, or mechanical safe called BlackBox. Also, many of them improved their soldering skills with 4 levels of our custom SMD challenge. The biggest creation of this year was Logic, that was used to teach programming.
Instructions and documentation can be found here.

Robotic Camp 2020

This year, out attendees built and programmed Robotka, which they could later upgrade and customize with various sensors and upgrades. At the end of the camp, everybody could test out his robot in a competition.
Instructions and documentation can be found here.

Robotic Camp 2019

In 2019 we prepared for all the children Robotic arm (in Czech), which every participant made. Last day we organized competitions, so that everyone can try his robot in different tasks.
Instructions and documentation can be found here.

Robotic Camp 2017

In 2017, participants of our camp took home a development board ALKS (Arduino Learning Kit Starter) with a very interesting ESP32 chip, which we programmed using the Arduino platform.
Instructions and documentation can be found here.

Robotic Camp 2016

The attendees received Arduino Nano module in the Robotic Camp 2016. The children learned the basics of programming and electronics and then they used some libraries and modules for their own projects. They used, for example, temperature sensors and barometers for logging current atmospheric conditions. Other projects presented connected display or intelligent LED strips with amazing color effects.

Partners

Our camp is continuously supported by our partners. We would not be able to organize the camp in its current form without them and we are eternally grateful to them.
