Build a two-wheeled robot in this exciting computing and electronics workshop. With expert guidance on construction and programming, and a kit of motors, wheels and electronics, you’ll be a robotics pro in no time.

Once built, learn the steps to program your creation to move forwards and backwards in a straight line. Add a distance sensor then write the code to stop your robot bumping into things.

All materials will be provided to build the robot. However the price of this course does not include being able to take robots away from workshop. Customers will be provided with a bespoke ‘ingredients’ list to grab your own kit and show off your robot building skills at home.

Please bring along a packed lunch. Parents are welcome to stay to help younger children and join in the fun. This popular workshop is the perfect way to keep young minds active over the summer holidays.
