Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

This is a follow-on to the beginner level program and we are taking things up a notch!

During this intermediate level fun hands-on four session workshop, kids aged 9-14 will create a programmable robot using the LEGO Mindstorms kit. They will build various attachments and use them to solve programming challenges such as a maze quest, tortuous line following and obstacle course.

Coding skills are strengthened as they learn about the ultrasonic, brick and motor sensors, then use these to develop more precise movements in their robot. Data wires and gears are also explored to create interactive robotic behaviour and synchronised movement respectively.

These sessions nurture critical thinking and problem solving through the use of the engineering design process.

We round up this intermediate level course with a game of sumo - designing and programming our robots to conquer the ring!

Please note that participants must either have completed a beginner's course in Robotics with LEGO Mindstorms by the 7th of Jan 2018 or have a robust understanding of basic EV3 programming including all the action and flow control blocks. It is also possible to book private EV3 coding lessons to get a child up to speed prior to this session.

Dates:

  • Every Sunday from 7th to 28th January 2018
  • 2:00pm - 4:00pm
