For the first week of the RASER-Bot curriculum we are just going to get started by building our robot chassis. Oncce we have a chassis assembled we will be able to start . We're using the SparkFun RedBot Shadow Chassis kit for our curriculum. Detailed instructions can be found at the RedBot webpage.
SparkFun also made this great video to demonstrate the construction process. Just open up your kit and follow along with the following tutorial.
You should definitely leave time for troubleshooting. If you finish early, look online at sites that show what the ShadowBot can do.
