We are pleased to announce our new BBC micro:bit workshop: All-in-one Robot Arm!
In this 8-hour workshop (2 hours sessions for four weeks), attendees will have a great opportunity to learn how to build simple robots and control it by using micro:bit. They will be controlling LEDs, build simple mechanical systems and move these pieces with the help of a servo motor.
Registration fee includes the following pack worth £20 RRP
- Servo Motor
- Wooden Robotic Arm
- Cartoon boxes
-Participants are expected to bring their own laptops for the course. If you already have a BBC micro:bit, bring your own board. Otherwise, order from us during registration.
Who can attend:
7-12 years old students. No previous experience required.
