Robot CyberSpy (Grades 6 and up)

Long distance becomes a thing of the past when you can harness the power of the internet. Telepresence robots are becoming more common in all sorts of settings from the office, to the hospital, and now your home. Students will learn how to write and host their own web server on a raspberry pi securely and safely, as well as use this server to host their own telepresence robot at home. Their robots will be able to be controlled from anywhere, and transmit data to and from their location, including a camera feed of what their robot is seeing. The students will take the robots home after the class, and they are very open to modifications and experimentation.
