TeRK – the Telepresence Robot Kit

  • We strongly believe that robotics can be used as a tool to educate and motivate students across a wide variety of topics and ages.

  • Emerging technologies are enabling us to simultaneously lower costs and increase functionality.

The Turk

A “TeRK”

With a TeRK, you can connect:

One webcam One wireless adapter Speakers Four DC motors

Eight LEDs Eight analog sensors Sixteen servos


Terk projects l.jpg
TeRK Projects

  • Curricular Modules for Introduction to Computer Science

  • Robot Diary

  • Network Neighborhoods

  • Online Community Building and Recipe Creation


Intro to cs curricula l.jpg
Intro to CS Curricula

  • Create curricular modules for the following CS topics: Simple I/O, Flow Control, Arrays, File read/write, and Errors and exceptions

  • Modules will include robot centered assignments and activities


Robot diary l.jpg
Robot Diary

  • Currently engaged in participatory design sessions with middle school girls

  • Design sessions will inform a future robot design that allows girls to express emotion and communicate with their friends through the robot


Network neighborhoods l.jpg
Network Neighborhoods

  • Provide high school students with environmental sensors and wireless technology to deploy environmental monitoring stations

  • Students will also be tasked with creating artistic public displays to express the information that their monitoring stations collect

Your Turn!

  • Modify the sample program to cause the robot to react to certain colors

  • How the robot reacts is up to you, but we suggest something obvious.

  • Doing nothing is not an acceptable reaction. 
