ROBO Engineers - Obstruction Avoiding Robot

Sundays, 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Feb 21 - Mar 21, 2021
CAD $175.00*
*Including Project Kits
Deadline: Jan 21, 2021
Build a cool robot that uses sensors to guide itself through obstructions. Through the 5 classes, participants will be introduced to robotics while:
  • Assembling and connecting motors, controller, and sensors.
  • Programming the behavior of the robot using an intuitive block programming interface
This workshop requires careful assembly and is recommended for kids in Grades 5-9. Robot kits will be delivered to your home. Kids will keep all materials so they can use the components to build other robots and continue exploring after the camp.
All our instructors are local BC Engineers with the know-how and the passion for engineering.
  • Basic knowledge of Scratch programming
  • Windows Computer with functioning USB port
Age Groups
Typically 9-14 year old kids will enjoy the workshops the most, but we welcome all age groups who are willing to take on the challenge! The projects are setup such that kids can complete them with minimal supervision, but parent participation is recommended for this virtual program.
Typical Class
We meet live online on Zoom or similar conferencing app. During Each 90-minute class, kids will work towards building a complete working robot from scratch. Additionally, kids wil learn about robotics concepts using demos and hands-on experiments.
Robot Kits
Cost for Robot Kit is included in the program fees. Robot Kits will be mailed before the start of the class. Shipping costs for locations outside Lower Mainland are not included.
*Shipping costs for locations outside Lower Mainland is extra.

Program Details
