This interactive, hands on workshop is designed to demonstrate how a robot really works.
This engaging workshop offers children a chance to construct a robot and learn real time programming in a fun atmosphere.
Using LEGO Mindstorm EV3 robot parts, the children will first construct the robot with the help of an instructor and detailed procedure.
Then children will learn to control the robot with the help of basic programming. The programming is based on Lego’s easy to understand programming language. Children intuitively use the simple ‘drag and drop’ icons to form their code. Children are guided step by step by experienced instructor on how to program their robot to perform precise movements as well as how to operate environmental sensors such as proximity and light.
Working in a team of three, children learn to work effectively in a group and arrive at a solution. Children will construct the robot and program it to complete various tasks.
The workshop concludes with students creatively programming their own robots to compete in a fun challenge of obstacle course race.
This workshop is suitable for children above the age of 12 years.
