Looking for software/hardware for my daughter to learn programming (robotics/embedded).

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Looking for software/hardware for my daughter to learn programming (robotics/embedded).

I hope there's enough traffic in this forum group to obtain some advice here. The Ultimaker.com forum seems like the best fit of all the forums I've joined for this question.

 

My daughter just joined a 4H robotics project group. I could spend a lot of money on experimenter or development kits, but I'm wondering if there's any kind of virtual software environment that would run on her Linux OS laptop. I can envision an educational tool with virtual machines (robots?) living in a graphical world that would respond to code that a student would create to program them to do various things.

 

Any ideas here would be much appreciated!

After a little online searching, I'd still be interested in hearing from anyone who has first-hand experience with similar software but Gazebo is in my daughter's Linux distro (MX-Linux) repository so it seems like a good place to start.
