The Obstacle Course and Robot Build works to foster a strong sense of collaborative problem solving skills through a large-scale obstacle course team build. Participants will work together to design and build an obstacle course and independently work to create robots that they will then use to navigate the opposing teams obstacle course.
Outcome: Participants will develop knowledge of basic robotics, design, and structural engineering. They will have ample opportunity to learn how to use the laser cutter as well as various power and hand tools.
In addition to the Obstacle Course and Robot Build young makers will participate in a variety of mini-workshops throughout the week. They will have opportunities to tinker, deconstruct electronics, use the 3D printers, and create new designs.
