What can I expect at Lab Liftoff: Monster Robots?

Across the two days of this workshop, children will learn about and interact with robotics, using Birdbrain Technologies’ Hummingbird Kits. During the workshop children will work in groups to design and build robots to showcase in our ‘Haunted Hallway’ at the Imagination Lab. These creepy critters and spooky robotic creations will be able to respond to interaction from anyone who passes by. The goal is is to delight others with unexpected animations, combining creativity, technology and humour!

Using craft materials, sensors, lights and servos, children will learn about engineering, electronics, coding, mechanisms and physical prototyping whilst imagining a spine-chilling addition for the Haunted Hallway.

This is a two-day workshop, where children can explore their imagination and ingenuity on both days:

    • Day 1: learn to code Hummingbird, then design and begin to build a creepy creation
    • Day 2: develop and complete your imaginative hair-raising interaction!
