Event description

Description

Are you ready for a summer of dino-themed adventures?

Our jurassic themed three day summer school is a brilliant way of getting into the exciting world of robotics and drones whilst having great fun! Over the three days you will create and program your own dinobots, program drones, produce stop-frame animations, film and produce a movie AND build your own robot buggy to take home and keep! Making the most of new technologies and working out of our fantastic Apple Regional Training Centre in Leamington Spa, your three days will be jam packed with lots of hands-on activities and challenges.

Whether you are a beginner or a computing expert there will be something for you:

  • Build your very own mBot robot buggy that you can both program* and remote control - take it home with you!

  • Use our makerspace to create and program robosaurs with LEGO Education WeDo 2 and Mindstorms EV3

  • Program mini drones

  • Animate like a pro

  • Create a Jurassic B-Movie to show everything you've done over your three days

The sessions are all about getting hands-on and creative with robotics, coding and some great apps. All the activities will encourage problem solving, teamwork, collaboration and experimentation. For the provisional session outline, please click here, but note that all sessions are subject to final confirmation. Please note that the cost of this event includes an mBot robot buggy for each attendee to build, take home and keep. When purchased separetely, these currently retail at between £80 to £90.

This is our third year running a summer school. If you attended in either of the previous years, it would be great to see you again for even more fun, and new challenges!
