Event description

Description

Code a solar system workshop
(Years 7 – 10)

Looking for an exciting introduction to coding? This workshop combines elements of robotics, coding, maths and astrophysics to give you the knowledge and tools required to build your very own solar system. In the Code a solar system workshop you will work together with your fellow participants to create an orbiting robotic solar system using Sphero robots.

Throughout the half-day workshop you will:

  • learn the basic principles of programming using Sphero's drag and drop interface

  • investigate the relationships between planet mass, orbit, orbital speed, and distance from the sun

  • design and model a robotic solar system that reflects Kepler's three laws of satellite motion.


The Discover STEM @ QUT holiday program is a great way to broaden your STEM knowledge and apply it in a real-world context. Register now if you are passionate about all things STEM and would like to join a group of like-minded students to learn more about coding this school holidays.
