The Programming MINDSET

GOOD TO KNOW:  A good Roboticist develops The Programming Mindset -- be calm, take small steps, form a line by line procedure. As your proficiency with the programming mindset is mastered, it makes it easier to learn any new language.

In this step, check out Must Learn Top Programming Languages for Robotics and journal the top five you want to master.

Another good thing to know: Scouts of America offers Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts merit badges for robotics. Check it out!
