Build A Robot
One Day Workshop
Wed 26 Oct 2016
10am - 4pm
Build a two-wheeled robot in this exciting computing and electronics workshop. With expert guidance on construction and programming, and a kit of motors, wheels and electronics, you’ll be a robotics pro in no time.
Once built, learn the steps to program your creation to move forwards and backwards in a straight line. Add a distance sensor then write the code to stop your robot bumping into things.
*This does not include materials to take robots away from workshop. Customers will be provided with a bespoke ingredients list to grab your own kit and show off your robot building skills at home.
