Who are the mentors?
Mentors are members of UTAS Robotics, college and university students, with experience in programming, electronics, and robotics.

Will I be able to keep the MiniBot at the end of the program?
You sure can! At the end of the program, you get to take your Arduino MiniBot home with a range of sensors and continue to work with your robot.

I have no experience with Arduino, can I still join this program?
Although some background with robotics or programming is recommended, no prior knowledge is needed.
