Learn how to program our brand new Lego Mindstorms EV3 robots to do your bidding. In this exciting program you'll learn how to teach a robot to do what you wish using motors, sensors and more! Great for beginners looking to get into robotics as well as kids looking to get more out of their Lego robots they've got at home. This course is presented as a series of challenges to encourage children to develop programming skills and be creative in their pursuits.
Participants must be able to read and use mathematics sufficiently at a minimum Year 3 level to get the most out of this workshop.
Please wear old clothes and bring a hat, sunscreen, water bottle, lunch and a snack (no peanut traces).

Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the program being held?
The Bowden Centre is located just off Caley Drive and is a 2 minute walk from the Visitor Centre and restaurant in the Australian Botanic Garden, Mt Annan. Park in the main car park and we'll have some signs to point you in the right direction!
My child is 4/5/6/7 years old, can they attend with their older sibling?
No. The minimum age of this program is set to ensure that children attending have the mathematical and problem solving skills to successfully program the robots and keep up with the pace of the program. Younger children tend to fall behind and can end up frustrated which can have an impact on the rest of the class.
