Event type: All Ages
This series of interactive workshops begins with a demonstration of different types of robots including one of the most advanced humanoid robots in the world and the only one in Ottawa (Aldeberan's NAO ROBOT)! Kids will get exposure to robotic machines and related concepts such as robotic movements, touch, sound, light and infrared sensors, motors, gears, gyroscopes and actuators to get them excited about the field of robotics.
The sessions will incorporate an interactive hands-on activity over the four week duration using the Lego Mindstorm NXT 2.0 robotics platform to design and build an obstacle-avoiding car, with computer software to plan, test and modify sequences of instruction to guide the car. Kids will be introduced to concepts in engineering and robotic movement, kinematics, and experience working with motors, gears and various types of sensors.
All the necessary materials and equipment will be provided for the facilitated sessions. No robotics experience is required.
Ticket Price for the 4-week series: $200 (+ tax & service fees)
Cutoff is Monday, January 20, 2020 3:59 pm EST unless it sells out earlier.
