Come and discover the fun and possibilities of technology at Te Manawa’s new robotics programme!

Suitable for children in school years 9-13 (13 to 18-year-olds), your child will be building, programming and driving their own robot in groups of up to four. Each session is 2.5 hours long and any session can be attended, or build their skills by signing up for all three sessions.

- Monday 3 Oct: Building animatronics and mechatronics – get the groundwork in how to build and programme robots.
- Wednesday 5 Oct: Strength and agility – can you build the strongest, most agile robot?
- Friday 7 Oct: Predator and Prey – design, build and battle your robots – will your team survive?

You teen will be mentored by Feilding High School teacher Graham Conlon and the school’s Robotics Club, who competed in the Vex World Championship in 2014 and 2015, and were 2016 winners of the Future Foundation Robotics Construction Challenge! Working in groups of four, your child will learn to design, build, programme and drive a robot, building problem solving and creative skills to take their opportunities in the Steam field to the next level. Get a group of friends and sign up today!

The classes can be attended individually on any day, or all together for a better understanding. Bring your own refreshments.
