This project will guide students through the process of building a model boat that can be programmed to navigate forwards, backwards, or steer left and right. The model boat is based on a “Springer” model tug boat, although any model wooden boat that has (or can be modified to have) 2 propellers would be appropriate. The craft is fitted with an Arduino that students will program to power 2 small electric motors that are attached to propellers.
