Workshop #1: Introduction to MINDSTORMS® (Wollongong)

Date: 26th Apr (Fri)
Time: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Cost: $80 (Inc. GST)
Location: University of Wollongong (Wollongong)

This is a shortened version of 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 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, Machine can serve as an alternate for students who feel the Introduction course is too simple. Enquire if you would like more information.

Date: 26th Apr (Fri)
Time: 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Overcomplicated, Overengineered and Overpowered! This workshop will challenge students to produce a collaborative “Great Ball Machine”, with each robot representing one link in a chain. This workshop requires teamwork and creativity as well as engineering and programming skills!
