To create mechanical movement, we use motors and microcontrollers. Microcontrollers can be programmed to design the behaviors of our machines.

DIY Microcontrollers with the ATTINY85

We have developed several ways of building low-cost DIY servocontrollers. Each of these tutorials relies on the ATTiny85 Microcontroller. Learn more about the ATTiny.

Off-the-Shelf Microcontrollers

These microcontrollers can be purchased for $15-25, and have resources and online communities set up to help students and educators learn to use them.
