My robot’s called Armadillo.

I found out about programming and decided to build an Arduino robot for the Robocup competition. I learned lots about problem solving!

Robots can only see through their sensors. They process what they see with programs which try to interpret the information.

Robots have sensors, people have senses. We sense the same world, yet we get different answers because we process the information differently.

As a dyslexic, I also process information differently – it can be challenging. Robotics has shown me the value of creative thinking.
