Line Following is a classic way to learn about electronics, robotics, and soldering. This simple car is based off the SPURT bot design, created by students & faculty at Rostock University in Germany.

Take your creation home, show it off to your friends!
Space is limited to just 8 people, sign up ahead of time to reserve your space! This project can be completed with a partner, feel free to bring someone along.
