This vacation workshop is for 11-14 year olds interested in getting started in Robotics with Lego Mindstorms.
Workshop #1 and #2 above are the same, they are just run on different dates.

The session will introduce you how to create your own robot using Mindstorms kits from Lego. The session involves construction and programming of a robot, anything from a car to a ball sorter. You can have a look through the standard designs for something to build or invent your own – then use the Lego software to write a program to control your design. Work on your own or team up with others from the class, either way you are sure to get a good start in Robotics and have a lot of fun.

There is a charge of $20 for this meetup and there is a limit of 10 attendees, so book now to avoid disappointment. Parents can stay with their child or leave them and pick up at the end. A showcase of the children’s creations will be given at the end for the parents.

Any money raised will be used to buy more Lego for the TechSpace. No payments accepted on the day, you need to pay via paypal when you RSVP.
