Event description

Description

This is a six part course teaching the basics of wheeled robot design whilst constructing your very own robot to keep. A bonus seventh session will be a competition between robots to race through a set of challenges, with prizes and trophies being awarded to the winners.

Attendies will be constructing their own two wheel drive robot with line following and collision avoidance, the course fees include all of the hardware and electronics required to construct the robot. Attendies will need to supply their own laptop for programming and debugging purposes. Your own simple hand tools (pliers, screwdrivers, wire cutters) are a bonus but not essential.

All tickets include a £30 non-refundable portion, If you are unable to attend we will not refund this portion of the ticket price, but you will still receive the hardware components kit, and can follow the instructions online.
