Take Remote Robotics to the next level! In Robo Rally, robots race over an obstacle-laden playing field that could potentially be within another state (or country!). Students will build and program robots at home – but then apply that work to robots sitting on a remote playing field, matching wits with other students in the course!.

Run as part of the Project Bucephalus Robotics Online program, this class is available to any student (child or adult) that wants to participate in a challenging STEM activity – and have a lot of fun in the process!

This our standard beginner course. Students are introduced to LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3, 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.
