Workshop #1: Introduction to Robotics

Date: 26th-27th Sept (Mon-Tues)
Time: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Cost: $140 (Inc. GST)
Location: Building X, TAFE Campus (Wollongong)
Compatible Platforms: MINDSTORMS® EV3, SPIKE Prime®, Robot Inventor® (Expansion kit and Force Sensor required)
This our standard beginner course. Students are introduced to LEGO® Robotics, 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 Robotics is our recommended course for novice students. However, Crossbows & Catapults 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: Crossbows & Catapults

Date: 26th-27th Sept (Mon-Tues)
Time: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Cost: $170 (Inc. GST)
Location: Building X, TAFE Campus (Wollongong)
Compatible Platforms: MINDSTORMS® EV3, SPIKE Prime®, Robot Inventor® (Expansion kit and Force Sensor required)

Take Aim! Crossbows & Catapults was a classic tabletop game from the 80s. Adapted for SPIKE Prime, it now has new life as LEGO® robots take on the role of the playing pieces. Play as part of an Alliance as you attempt to batter down the opponent’s wall and topple their tower. Designing and building the robots is only half the exercise: strategy and tactics will be needed to play the game itself!

This course is a mix of free-range and guided material. Students will be led through complex programming, and then encouraged to design and build their own versions of provided robot designs. This course is designed for students already familiar with LEGO® Robotics – 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.
