Kids’ Coding Workshop with Robot! Pre-Registration Required
January 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$1 – $45
*Previously submitted for 1/20; date has changed to 1/13*
There’s always something fascinating about robots and now kids can take control of them in a hands-on computer coding workshop on Saturday, January 13, from 2 – 3:30 p.m. (This is a rescheduled workshop from December 9. If you registered for that workshop, you are still registered and will have received an email notice.)
The workshop is for 3rd-6th graders only. With a limit of six students, there will be plenty of time for individual attention. The cost is $25 each/$45 two siblings. Parent drop-off is fine.
Walking a straight line, or getting from point A to B is easy for humans, but you have to tell a robot how to do that. Explore the Scribbler Robot’s line following, object detection/avoidance, and line avoidance features. Students will learn how the robot follows lines, detects and avoid objects and maneuvers an obstacle course using line detection.
