Build Lego Robots at Heene Community Centre

Build Lego Robots at Heene Community Centre


Following on from the success of their half-term workshops, Curiosity Hub returns to Heene Community Centre on August 4th with two more creative, fun and educational Lego Robotics workshops.

First, from 9.00 am to 12.00 noon for ages 6 to 9: Adventure Stories with Lego WeDo Robotics. In this workshop, you will be off on a robotic  adventure!  Students will work in pairs to assemble robots using Lego Education WeDo robotics kits and use the visual drag-and-drop software to instruct the robots to move, respond to sensors and play sounds.  You’ll also learn about the mechanics of motors, axles and gears in this  exciting workshop.

Secondly, from 1.00 pm to 4.00 pm for ages 10 to 16: Rescue Robots with Lego Mindstorms Workshop.  You’ll be exploring how robots are used and the advantages they can offer in search and rescue operations.  Students work in pairs to design and build a robot and learn how to use the drag-and-drop Lego Mindstorms interface to program it to complete themed  challenges. Students will also explore the interaction between  programming, sensors and robot mechanics in this creative workshop.

No previous experience is required.

Earlybird & Sibling/multi-booking discounts are available. See the Curiosity Hub website:
