Workshop Theme: ‘Sporty Robots!’ with Lego WeDo Robotics

Recommended Ages: 6-9. Students will be paired with a similarly-aged partner, or friend/sibling if requested.

Description: Bring toys to life! 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. We’ll also learn about the mechanics of motors, axles, gears and levers in this exciting workshop. Models built: Drumming Monkey & Smart Spinner


Price: £20, or £18 if booking 2 or more children. Pay by BACS to avoid Eventbrite fee.

Other Details: This is a drop-off workshop. Please note, students are unable to take the robotics kits home; parents are invited to view the robots in action and take photos/videos before we pack up.

Venue/Transport: 21 Old London Road, Brighton, BN1 8XR (44th Brighton Scout HQ). There is 1-hour free parking outside the venue, and free street parking nearby. The 5A bus route has plenty of regular buses from the centre of town, and stops next door, outside the Co-op Supermarket in Old London Road.
