Are you curious about how stuff works? Keen to explore sensational science and rad robotics while putting your problem-solving and technology skills to the test? Then this hands-on two-day workshop is for you!
Featuring favourite experiments such as “slime” and “the volcano”, our Science segment is an awesome practical exploration of chemistry and physics! We’ll also try plenty of new experiments to extend your knowledge of how elements interact! As always, you’ll have samples to take home and show your family and friends.
In our Technology component, participants will learn the foundations of java script and block coding as they program their Sphero robot to complete tasks, obstacle courses, and even a creative storytelling challenge starring their robot as the leading character!
