Workshop #1: Introduction to MINDSTORMS® (Shoalhaven)

Date: 8-9th October (Mon-Tue)
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, The Kitchen can serve as an alternate for students who feel the Introduction course is too simple. Contact Us if you would like more information.

Get a taste of the FIRST Robotics Competition – at LEGO® scale! Building on the success of our previous “FRC-Style” robotics challenges, this workshop will feature an original FRC-style game, played by MINDSTORMS® robots operating autonomously and via remote control. In this course, students will design, build, and program their own unique robots to play “The Kitchen” game. Once operational, robots will compete in a series of three-a-side qualification matches before forming alliances for the final event!

This workshop 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. Contact Us if you would like more information.
