Berytech Fab Lab Workshop: Lego Robotics, Level 1

From: December 4, 2018 at 6:00 pm
Till: February 19, 2019 at 7:00 pm
Berytech Fab Lab, Berytech Innovation Park Mark Roukoz - Mkalles

Workshop Details

This Berytech Fab Lab workshop is designed for kids between the age of 5 and 12 years old. In this workshop, students will use the LEGO Robotics Kit, which is a programmable robotics construction set that gives them the power to build, program and command their own LEGO robots.

At the end of each session, the student would have built a robot using LEGO Bricks and programmed it to perform various tasks. Every week there is a new activity/robot to build. This would help understanding the workflow of robotics and technology, little ones can see how science comes to life.

The goal is to learn basic programming skills, conceptualize science from a practical point of view and acquire critical thinking.
