Build a 'Bot workshop (12-17yrs)

Working in teams of four, you will work with IET engineers to build and code a drag race robot. All robots will be eligible to enter the Robot Triathlon 2019 competition event at QUAD on Robot Day, Saturday 6 July. Teams will also have the option to upgrade their robots in their own time after the workshop to compete in other challenges. No previous experience required.

Important notes:

• Each team of four will take away only one robot to keep and bring to Robot Day on Sat 6 July.

• If you are unable to form a team of four then we will group you with other participants to form a team on the day. The ticket price includes only one robot per team and you will have to decide who in the team will take home the robot you build. Additional robot kits may be purchased at £32.50 per kit.

• This session is for 12-17 year olds only. For other age groups, please see Related Events below.
