Are you ready to dive into the thrilling world of robotics and uncover the world of sensors, motors and controllers?

Become a coding whiz using drag and drop coding blocks. Then dive into forever loops and sensor coding, before executing your commands and watching your creation come to life.

So, what are you waiting for, come along and give our EV 3 Mindstorm robots a workout!  You know you want to!

During this workshop participants will be:

  • Introduced to programming EV3 robots with drag-and-drop coding
  • Learn the application of new programming skills in challenges using the robot’s colour and ultrasonic sensors
  • Modify your robot structure to create a zoetrope robot (animated pictures), a spirograph robot (cool artwork), and more
  • Showcase of newly acquired robotic skills and robot artwork at the Mindstorming Mayhem Premiere at the end of the day. Adults are welcome to join. 

Experience a full day of fun during these school holidays! Don't forget to bring a water bottle and your lunch.
