Robotics Workshop

WHEN
Sat, February 28
9:30 am - 12:30 pm

WHAT

We will be building robots using LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 kits. Building and controlling your own robot is fun. Follow the simple series of steps and before you know it, you’ll be in control of robots driving, slithering, walking, slamming, and crawling all over the place!

We provide the kits to use during the workshop and help you build and program robots. The programming interface is icon-based and easy to use. If you have your own kit, feel free to bring it along and get help or just to share your own awesome creations!

This workshop is suitable for kids from 7-107. If you are under 17, please bring an adult along with you. Families are encouraged to participate.

Please register to let us know you are coming. Space is limited.

    I would like to bring my son, Naizejha, to this workshop – he is 8 years old and has built with Legos for years. He is excited about learning robotics. We will be about 30 mintues late because he has vision therapy in Northampton from 8:30-9:30am on Saturday mornings.
    thanks,
    f.

    Hello,

    I am hoping to start a First team in S. Hadley (http://www.usfirst.org). I was excited to learn about Holyoke Codes. It would be great if we could meet and explore some ideas.

    I work full-time at Elms College, and can be reached at the email address above. I can come over to Holyoke just about anytime.

    Hope to hear from you soon ! Elizabeth
