An interactive hands on workshop designed to demonstrate how a robot really works.

This engaging workshop offers children a chance to learn real time programming in a fun atmosphere. 
Using laptops and either EV3 or NXT Lego Mindstorms robots, the kids are asked to complete a variety tasks whilst learning about basic programming. The programming itself is based on Lego's easy understand computer program, whereby students intuitively use the simple 'drag and drop' icons to form their code. Children are guided step by step by experienced presenter on how to program their robot to perform precise movements as well as how to operate environmental sensors such as light and sound.

This vacation workshop is built around a series of challenges, dependent on ability and interest;

  • dont knock the Lego man over!
  • dash around the block
  • follow the black line
  • herd the sheep into the pen
  • bulldozer minesweeper
  • 'robot dancing' or 'robot wars'

Alternatively children can creatively making their own routines following the initial instruction, again dependent upon their ability. Working in pairs or threes, children are guided step by step on how to program their robot to perform precise movements as well as how to operate environmental sensors such as light and sound. The workshop concludes with students creatively programming their own robots to perform a short dance routine or another separate fun challenge chosen based on student's abilities and interests.

Limited to 30 children as a maximum per workshop; please don't exceed this number as the children need to work in small groups at computers to run the robots. The fewer the children, the better contact with one of our instructors for help and troubleshooting.

This performance can also be viewed as a LIVE web conference anywhere in the world!

Just wanted to forward my HUGE thank you to Clare who looked after the Lego Robotics event at East Melbourne Library, it was amazing!! Parents were in awe, staff had fun, and kids were determined to work their robots, as well as experience some of the science games/objects that were provided.The victory dances were well and truly performed when the robot responded to its program. The event was rewarding on so many developmental and social levels, absolutely outstanding.

Engaging for kids!

Specific tasks that are possible (based on ability)

- Use motors to accelerate, brake, reverse in the correct sequence
- Vary motor power to perform a point and curve turn
- Use loop based programming to drive the robot in a square
- Clear a table of light obstacles using a basic programming sequence.
- program the robot to stop on the sound of a loud hand clap.
- Use a light sensor to detect light levels in the room.
- Use logic based programming to make the robot follow a black line.
- Use a touch sensor or ultrasonic sensor to detect a solid wall
- program the robot to react to differing light levels in the room.
- Use a combination of motors and light detectors to hit a golf shot
- Determine the correct force required to score an ice hockey goal
- Negotiate a maze of solid objects
- Sensor calibration
