Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Cost: $135 (Inc. GST)
Location: University of Wollongong, Shoalhaven Campus (Nowra)

This our standard beginner course, suitable for both NXT® and EV3®. Students using Project Bucephalus equipment will work with EV3®. Students are introduced to LEGO® MINDSTORMS®, learning the basics of robotics and programming as they build robots capable of reacting to their environment and making simple decisions. The second day of the workshop finishes with the ever-popular “Robot Sumo” challenge and a tournament where all families are welcome. No previous experience is required. While the activity is designed to be suitable for ages 7 and up, we will accept younger students if they are accompanied by an adult.

Note: Introduction to MINDSTORMS® is our recommended course for novice students. However, Arcade Adventures can serve as an alternate for students who feel the Introduction course is too simple. Enquire if you would like more information.
