Event description

Description

Teaching robots to hit things with sticks: what could possibly go wrong?

This musical tinkering workshop is perfect for anyone looking to take their first steps in digital making. A simple circuit, a cardboard structure, lashings of tape, and a dab of glue... Before you know it, we’ll have built our very own orchestra of robots.

Developed by the NUSTEM team at Northumbria University, this workshop has been used with primary and secondary schools, at arts festivals, and in visitor centres, both for taught lessons and as an informal drop-in activity. The latest iteration leans heavily on Internet of Things technologies to keep costs down and to present opportunities for extension and project work.

Room: Workshop 2, 1st floor

Workshop leader: Jonathan Sanderson & Joe Shimwell

All equipment is provided
