iTryRobotic Workshop with LEGO EV3 Mindstorm Robot Kit

October 2 @ 5:30 am - 8:00 am

Event Category:

IEEE MIT Undergraduate Research Technology Conference 2022 is proud to host an iTryRobotic workshop at the MIT Stata Center in Cambridge MA. This workshop will introduce the world of robotics to children by guiding them to build and program a Lego Mindstorm robot. The children will enjoy problem-solving and will develop interpersonal skills through working in a collaborative team setting as they learn to create a simple computer program that controls the behavior of a robot. They also will have the opportunity to develop creative designs to solve engineering challenges. These skills lay a strong foundation for future study in Computer Science and Engineering, Math, Mechanical Engineering and other STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) related subject areas. Designed for: 4th to 10th grade children Fee: An adult registration is required for each child. There is no child fee. Parent, please enter your child’s full name, age and gender on the “Special Requests” entry box. Register by September 30, 20122 (IEEE Member = $20, Non-Member = $35) On-Site Registration => (IEEE Member = $30, Non-Member = $50) Limited to 20 seats per session.
