About this Event

Interested in learning more about robots and how code is used to control their movements? In this introduction to computer coding workshop participants will use colour and block coding to direct tiny Ozobot robots through a series of Mars related challenges. We will also explore how the Perseverance Rover and Ingenuity Helicopter will be used in upcoming missions to Mars.

Feel free to come dressed as your favourite robot, martian or space traveller for Halloween!

This program is recommended for children ages 7 – 12. Children must be accompanied by adults. Adults are encouraged to participate in the workshop with their children.

Your time slot will include 30 minutes in our Cosmic Courtyard Gallery and one hour to complete the workshop.

REGISTRATION:

Register your group for one of four time slots (10:00am, 11:30am, 1:00pm or 2:30pm). For each time slot you are permitted to bring a group with a maximum of 4 people.

Tickets are by donation, with a recommended value of $12 per person in each group.

We will be hosting 6 groups during each time slot.
