Workshop #1: Introduction to MINDSTORMS® (Shoalhaven)

Date: 3-4th January (Thurs-Fri)
Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Cost: $135 (Inc. GST)
Location: University of Wollongong (Shoalhaven Campus)

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, Siege can serve as an alternate for students who feel the Introduction course is too simple. Contact Us if you would like more information.

Workshop #2: Siege (Shoalhaven)

Date: 3-4th January (Thurs-Fri)
Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Cost: $165 (Inc. GST)
Location: University of Wollongong (Shoalhaven Campus)

Storm the Castle! In Siege, students will compete with each other to build and program robots to attack a medieval castle and escape with the treasure. Expect to make your robot cross a moat, knock down walls, navigate a labyrinth and much more.

This is free-range course where students are encouraged to create and program a variety of robots to perform a succession of tasks as they see fit. This is designed for students already familiar with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® – or novices able to cope with a steep learning curve! 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. Enquire if you would like more information.
