SATURDAY WORKSHOP: ROBOTIC BEETLES

ORGANISED AND PERFORMED BY ROGLAB

17.11.2018

Are you fond of robots, especially those that are quick and look like real-life small critters? Join us on Saturday 17 November at 10:00 am, at our robotic beetle workshop!



We’ll make a simple robot and give it two motorised legs whose vibrations help the robotic tramp to wander about. You will be introduced to the basics of mechanics and electronics and learn about electromechanical processes. By adding cables, using a screwdriver, soldering and combining different components you will learn about electric current, see how an engine works, and learn about basic electronics.
