Robotics Camp - [Level 1]

Build and Programme your own Robot! 

Students can unleash their creativity, have fun building and programming robots in this inventive and competitive project! 

As part of the session, our trainer will take students on an immersive experience to understand the very basics of robotics and get hands on practical experience on the different areas of robotics. Participants will work intensively to build a robot and programme with different behaviours by adding and removing components and writing codes. 

This is a great programme to get hands-on coding with Arduino and learn about sensors and electronics. Students will use tools, materials and components available at Makerspace Al Zeina to assemble and modify their own robot. The Winter Robotics Camp is a five-day hands-on workshop, where participants will learn to design and build an interactive obstacle avoiding robot! They will be working on two behaviours: movement design and control via code and avoiding obstacles by using an IR sensor. At the end of this programme students will keep their projects to continue their exploration and learning journey at home! As the Robot design is open-ended they can fabricate parts and modify the design and functionality of the robot. 

The Swiss based start-up, ETHAFA will deliver an introductory session at the start of this programme through an approach based on stories and tangible activities, using the Steammians kit.
