At Maker Faire New York, we met adult with tyro Toby Goebeler of Dover High School, Pennsylvania, to learn some-more about his Tic-Tac-Toe Robot.

Tic-tac-toe with Dover Robotics

We came to see Toby and Brian Bahn, production clergyman for Dover High School and personality of a Dover Robotics club, so they could tell us about a middle workings of a Tic-Tac-Toe Robot project, and how a Raspberry Pi fit within it. Check out a video for Toby’s reason of a build and a program determining it.

Toby’s strange robotic arm antecedent used a weight to approach a coop on and off a paper. He after transposed this with a servo motor.

Toby documented a prototyping routine for a drudge on a Dover Robotics blog. Head over there to hear some-more about a highs and lows of building a robotic arm from scratch, and about how Toby schooled to confederate a Raspberry Pi for both program and hardware control.

The finished build is a tic-tac-toe beast, besting everybody who dares to plea it to a game.

And in box you’re wondering: no, nothing of a Raspberry Pi group were means to kick a Tic-Tac-Toe Robot when we played opposite it.

Your turn

We always adore saying Raspberry Pis being used in schools to learn coding and digital making, either in the classroom or during after-school activities such as a Dover Robotics bar and a possess Code Clubs and CoderDojos. If we are partial of a coding or robotics club, we’d adore to hear your story! So make certain to share your practice and projects in a comments below, or around a amicable media accounts.
