Sauce is a robotics platform made for kids to learn programming. This is actually a tutorial about building a robot from scratch and then programming it using Python.By building this robot, kids will get an overview about - Basic Mechanics, basic electronics, basic computer programming(python), craft work and lot of other cool ideas. This is not an ordinary robot project. Kids builds the robot by constructing robot mechanics, do electrical wiring or even soldering, build some basic electronic sensors, do some craft work on the robot etc. Once the robot is done, they can programmed using Python.
Building the robot
The robot is build from cardboard and electronics. A PC(through serial communication) will be used to control the robot. Initial plan is to build a robot that looks like a bird. Design can be later changed if a better idea is found.
