Programming Robotic Arms


Programming Robotic Arms

For adults and teenagers

Robotic arms attempt to perform similar functions to a human arm and are used in factories and automation.

Learn how to to get a robotic arm to perform for you. From moving objects, drawing and even laser etching and 3D printing!

This course is an ideal introduction for those looking to explore robotics for fun or as a career.

Course Details

Anatomy of a Robotic Arm

We will examine a robotic arm to understand how its movements are controlled.


We will look at the types of motors available and their pros and cons.

Using code to control a motor

We will write some code in Python to make controlled movements of a motor.

Building and controlling a simple arm

We will build a simple arm with 2 motors and use Python to make coordinated movements of the arm.

Precision movements

We will use a bit of maths and coding to move the arm to a specific point and to draw lines.


We will look at what we have learned through the hands-on activity and relate it to engineering priciples such as degrees of freedom, joint types and forces.

Simple Application

We will apply our learnings to program a simple off-the-shelf robot arm.

Advanced Robotic Applications

We will use an industrial quality robot to carry out some precision activities, including precise repetitive movements, drawing and laser etching.

Individual Projects

Students will be encouraged to experiment and create their own tasks.
