This is a two-day workshop running at Sydney Observatory.
Program a rover! Learn about what space rovers are and what they do before designing and building a Mars rover. Discover the basics of control systems and robotics using LEGO EV3 robots to get your motors in gear and sensors in action to avoid obstacles in order to complete your space missions. In this workshop, you will code with the new Scratch 3.0 and use it to program an EV3 robot.
Bringing lunch is essential as there is no cafe on site.
