A 21st Century Elementary School S.T.E.A.M. Education Program


 
It all starts with a RoboGuts™ circuit board + MCU + SpeakJet chip

The best starting MCU is the PICAXE 28X2 module seen in the picture above ... but you can swap that out with most of the common MCU chips or modules as you want to use;


YES, the RoboGuts™ circuit boards are in stock! Buy yours today!


 





 
Adding power to the RoboGuts™ circuit board
Every RoboGuts™ circuit board + PICAXE 28X2 module + SpeakJet chip also comes with a 9V battery cable and power switch cable, as well as enough jumper wires and a RGB 3-color LED to build the talking & singing X0-Project.


There are Several Different Ways to Power the RoboGuts™ circuit boards


 





 
Add the Components and Jumper Wires
as you see them in the lesson wiring diagram

Now you're ready to program the lesson into the MCU and see it function!


 





 
Click on the Wiring Diagram Image
to reveal the programming code for the lesson


Copy/Paste the programming code into the program editor

Notice that (sombol LED = B.1) in the listing, that means the annode or + PIN of the LED needs to connect to the associated PIN 18 of the PICAXE 28X2 module ...


 





 
By Lesson 10 you are learning about phonemes

Those little phonetic pieces of words and sounds you assemble into speech or singing ... and it's easiest to do this using a Phrase-A-Lator Development Kit

Connected to your PC, you easily build up sentences, phrases, singing code ready to copy/paste into the final programming code for your project.


 





 
After going through the essential lessons
you build up the RoboGuts™ circuit board for the first miniFloppyBot X0-Project

Now you are learning how to combine lesson programming code and wiring into one project!

The miniFloppySquattyBodyBot and most other bots and animatronic projects will only use Lesson 00, Lesson 02, Lesson 10 and Lesson 20 or 21 combining them to create fun toys, animatronics or scary monsters.

3D Print your plastic parts and in minutes you've assembled a robot toy that can talk and sing in any language!

The goal for this project is to help every
child around the world to move ahead of the average!

Understanding the basic steps of manufacturing comes from hands-on practice and the RoboGuts™ Kits and S.T.E.A.M. Education Program makes this easy and safe for all school children K-12 to get started and become intermediate Roboteers, Inventors, Makers and even Entrepreneurs.

The RoboGuts™ Kit is intelligent content for a full S.T.E.A.M. education program that justifies having a 3D printer in schools for children and adults all ages.

The RoboGuts™
circuit board is designed to be very universal so that it can be used for home hobby animatronics, big and small robots, talking and singing toys for young children and even industrial prototypes.

Users learn to create real usable electronic circuits, users learn how to use phonemes to add sound effects, speech and even singing in any language in BASIC and other programming languages.

The RoboGuts™ circuit board makes small toy building so much fun and young children become totally engaged in learning all they can about what it takes to make their own toys ... and they're making the toys themselves for themsleves!


The RoboGuts™ circuit board
can host almost any MCU chip or module!


There are basically four sections to the RoboGuts™ circuit board

. . . Section 1: Power distribution for the RoboGuts™ circuit board circuits.

. . . Section 2: The MCU chip/module area on the left that allows for any
. . . . . . . . . . . . 2-PIN to 28-PIN MCU DIP chip or module.

. . . Section 3: The bread board areas with female headers for jumper wires
. . . . . . . . . . . . and standard 3-PIN R/C male headers.

. . . Section 4: The synth chip socket and audio amplifier to add beeps, speech
. . . . . . . . . . . . and song in any language.


How the program works;

Step 1: . . . Visit the web page associated for the chip/module you have selected to use with the
. . . . . . . . . . RoboGuts™ circuit board.

Step 2: . . . See the wiring diagram image on the web page and add jumper wires on your
. . . . . . . . . . RoboGuts™ circuit board exactly the same way.

Step 3: . . . Click on the wiring image of the diagram to see the programm listing.

Step 4: . . . Copy/Paste the program listing into the programming editor.

Step 5: . . . Download the program to the chip or module on your RoboGuts™ circuit board.

Step 6: . . . Watch the lesson at work.

Step 7: . . . Making changes in the program listing to explore and see how the changes effect
. . . . . . . . . . how the lesson functions.

Step 8: . . . Move onto the next lesson or end projects.

Back in 2006 I realized that at 3pm young children get out of school and join in online FPS/CTF gaming. Thus I began the R2Pv1 Educational Gaming Robot System hoping to move children into one room playing with each other, learning to play nice and not talking to perverts and predators that they find in the online games.

I had also started calling my house a "KickStart House" helping neighbors to learn about technology and find an interest in developing new job skills. Later, when I learned about "KickStarter.com" I changed the name to the L'Robotorium Shop ... http://LRobotorium.com/

By 2011 I started teaching beginner robot classes at a Boys & Girls club ... After the class I continued as a volunteer helping the young children play with robots and learn new skills.

In 2012 I taught a 3D CAD modeling class for a small group of Scouts 3D Design and 3D Printing at Scout Sea Base: Lemonade Day and was amazed how fast the kids learned to use the program.

Not having appropriate space for a real L'Robotorium Shop where I could teach anybody that came in the door and have a safe place for young children to play FPS/CTR robot games like the "Castles & Crosses" game I had developed, and space for a few different types of desk top manufacturing machines I began a search for funding to convert a store front near a city transit hub making it easy for children and seniors to come to the L'Robotorium Shop.

In 2007 I started making my RoboToons robot cartoons ... and trying to explore what was in my mind, what I thought might be in the robots mind I began using the 3D CAD models like BillyBot (originally designed to be the primary host for RoboToons cartoons) and the FloppyBots, miniFloppyBots etc.

After a few months I started getting emails from people asking for T-shirts so I created the design for the T-shirt I wear every day. Yes, you can find them http://robotoons.wordans.ca/. Too bad I don't make any money here.

Then after a few years people started pointing to my T-shirt and asking me where they could buy a BillBot robot toy. I had to tell them the BillyBot was only a RoboToons cartoon character, but this got me thinking that since the BillyBot was based on a few real home hobby robotics components I could maybe make a working BillyBot. Hence, BillyBot was born into the real world.


The birth of the RoboGuts™ S.T.E.A.M. Education Program Idea

The RoboGuts™ circuit board was born out of the need for a project board that could host almost any MCU chip or module, that is small yet have some bread board area and the ability to add sounds, speech and song to projects.

I needed to make a circuit board small enough to build a real talking and singing BillyBot robot and later for the RoboToons Robot Theater Production characters.

What happened during the design and experiment process is that I realzied I could make a very general purpose µController circuit board aimed towards home hobbyists and younger school children to make learning faster, easier and more affordable.

Having a working BillyBot robot I began building the RoboToons Robot Theater stage and began RoboToons Robot Theater Productions to explore making entertaining educational robot shows. Now I have to learn how to be funny and entertaining as well as educational.

I've pretty much proven I'm not a seasoned script writer ... yet!

Next step on the path is start volunteering to teach beginner robotics classes to Scouts, Boys & Girls clubs and, teach other volunteers how easy it is to teach using the RoboGuts™ Kits to teach to teach adults how to make great toys for children as soon as I can get RoboGuts™ circuit boards and Lesson Kits inventory to sell.

... and hopefully even start making toys for other children stuck in hospitals for long periods of time.
