The Idea Collective, MOTAT’s newest installation showcasing innovation, is partnering with Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) for Auckland’s inaugural Techweek.

During Techweek AKL, The Idea Collective will host a weekend of hands-on technical workshops. These offer the chance to experience first-hand how to make a computer game, use a 3D printer or build a PC. Participants will spend a morning or afternoon learning from some of the most interesting and fun innovators in the city, including The Pop-Up Arcade, Robogals, Hubbub, Playtech and Ames IT.

This 'Introduction of Robotics' workshop gets hands-on with Lego Mindstorm EV3 robots and the graphical programme software used to operate them. Designed to suit both girls and boys aged 10 to 14 it’s presented by Robogals, a world-wide network of engineering students committed to boosting the interest and involvement of girls in the field of engineering and technology.

Participation is by donations but booking is essential.
