Roaming Robots - Thursday 15th March 2018 (Cambridge Science Festival)
This event is now fully booked.
Have you ever played with an Arduino before? Arduino is a brilliantly simple device that you can use to build electronics projects easily, thus allowing you to explore physical computing in just a few simple steps. Connect the Arduino board to a computer, write some code using the Arduino software (primarily manipulating the in-built examples), upload it to the board and the project is ready to go!
We will be showing you how to connect motors and sensors to your Arduino and create the very basics of a roaming robot. Can you program it to navigate the room cleverly?
The session is ideal for students in the KS3 and KS4 age group. The fee is £12 for workshop participants, whether an adult or a child. Accompanying adults are charged our standard entry fee of £8. Please note that all under 14's must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Although the booking is for a specific time slot, entry to the museum is permitted all day. The museum is normally open from 10 am to 5 pm. However, on this day, the museum will be open until the end of the event.
