Lego Robotics Parties

A fantastic party for kids who really love Lego & robots!

An interactive hands-on party with a difference!

Using laptops and Lego Mindstorms robots, children will be able to find out how a robot really works.
The programming itself is based on Lego’s easy understand NXT or EV3 computer program, whereby the kids intuitively use the simple ‘drag and drop’ icons to form their code.

Working in pairs, 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 fewer the children, the better contact with one of our instructors for help and troubleshooting. 5 computers and 5 robots are brought to the party.

The robotics party is built around a series of challenges, dependent on ability and interest.
Age limited to 8 years and up. Includes access to free science experiments emailed every month!

Designed from experience

Our parties have been designed by experienced science teachers and communicators to make sure that the balance is right; cool experiments that they don’t normally see at school and all the fun stuff that you would see at a science toy store!

Plus we’ve run 1000’s of science parties since 2004 so all experiments have been completely tried and tested. With all the great feedback we’ve had, your child is sure to have a blast!

Robotics party activities

Available in Sydney & Melbourne districts


What do they get to do?

It’s all about having fun and tailoring the party to suit what the kids can do.
Specific challenges that could be posed (based on ability and interest):

  • Lego robot bowling
  • 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.
  • Determine the correct force required to score an ice hockey goal
  • Negotiate a maze of solid objects
    …..and more (it’s only limited by time and imagination!)

The point of this party is to engage kids into computing in a fun way
The kids will have a ball whilst learning about how to control a robot they can relate to in real time!

For up to 10 kids with 1 presenter.

Science Party Review

C. Jackson, Northbridge

Thanks for a great party yesterday. The boys really enjoyed it – and so did we! The whole mix of programming, practicing and playing was perfect!

C. Rowlands, Engadine.

Just a quick thank you for the party you did for us today. My son has told me that it was the best party ever and he would like another one the same next year, and also for his 18th and 21st!!! What a hit. All the children enjoyed it, as did my husband and myself. Thank you for your punctuality and friendly, professional manner. It made the party very stress free from my point of view. My son has told me he will have robot dreams tonight. They were "awesome and fully sick" in the words of a 9 year old! A huge thank you once again for everything.
