Learning about Robots at the Sciencenter

Posted 3 Dec 2002 at 21:23 UTC by steve Share This

A new story in the Ithaca Journal describes a two day robotics workshop for children at the Sciencenter of Ithaca, NY. Partly funded by NASA, the workshop taught kids 10 to 17 years old to build Lego Mindstorms robots that could run through a maze. The message seems to be that learning about robots is fun.

The Los Alamos National Laboratories has been facilitating free workshops based on Mark Tilden's BEAM technology for 9 years already, with #10 this spring.

Totally free for up to 300 students, they work on everything from easy "learn-to-solder" kits to the most advanced walking robots provided by Solarbotics.

Here's another page from Solarbotics showing a previous (2001) workshop.

Details on the next workshop should be online late January.
