Event description

Description

Come to this course (2 days and a half) and let us introduce you to the joys of ‘Making and Inventing’ with super easy to use electronic components and programming techniques. Create inspirational Robotic Creatures for a special robot wonderland showcase made from discarded items and materials. Creativity + Robotics = Awesome!

You will use the BBC micro:bit to control the Hummingbird Robotic Kit and all its components: motors, servos, LEDs and sensors (light, distance, sound…) to build an Animal Robot of your choice that represents a creature you love from nature. Then programme it to light up, move and react to passers-by, in ways that makes it look at home in its Wonderland environment.

No previous experience is necessary but children that know the Hummingbird are welcome to come again to extend their knowledge of robotics. Your Robot Creature will be displayed in the ScrapBot Wonderland showcase to inspire others to reduce their impact on the planet.

If you can, please bring a cardboard box and other recycling materials of your choice to build and decorate your robot. This workshop is part of our “Reuse, Recycle...Robots” project supported by Carnegie UK Trust. Delivered by U Can Too.

Suitable for children 9 to 11, please do not buy tickets for younger children. Your child will be unsupervised at lunch time and if they need to access the bathroom. Arrive 10 minutes before the session to secure your place. Although this event is non-refundable, let us know if you want to cancel it please. We will try to re-sell your ticket and give you a refund if we do so.

Dates: Tuesday 27 to Thursday 29 August (you need to attend all the dates)

Times: Tuesday and Wednesday from 10am to 4pm and Thursday from 10am-12:30pm
