Robotics Free-Building Workshop - Youth
Come free-build with hundreds of robotic parts, and control your robotic creations using remotes and engines to see who can build the fastest and strongest robot! Working in small groups you will truly be able to put your imagination and skills to the test as you participate in robotic technology. You won’t be able to take these parts home, but will be able to take your creations apart and rebuild them over and over! Be prepared to discuss, test run, and work together with other team mates as you hone your skills to compete in our Minds in Motion robot battles! Instruction by: Minds in Motion. Limit is 12 per class.
Due to COVID-19 guidelines, participants are required to bring enough water bottles to last the entire workshop. Feel free to bring your own hand sanitizer. Participants & staff will be required to wear a face covering. Participants will be required to have a temperature check and health assessment upon arrival at the program before they are allowed to participate. Face coverings are required for all within the building when dropping off/picking up children, and adults should stay with their child at drop off until they have been signed in (unless health regulations are revised). You can begin arriving 15 minutes before the program is scheduled to begin to allow time for the health assessment and temperature testing. Please be patient as this process will take some time to complete. Pre-registration online is required.
