More information on the Grungebots Robot Making Workshop can be found here. This event is good for participants 11 years old and over. It does not require pre-existing knowledge however, having played with programming would be an advantage (eg Scratch, Python or C ). The Robot that is built is yours to keep at the end of day 2. This full day event is run at WBHS and lunch is provided. A laptop is required (we do have a couple of spares). The sign-up form is here. The cost for the two days is $150 including lunches and the Grungebot kit you will build and take home. This event is facilitated by the Questionable Research Labs team.

Running from the Whangarei Club (Rust Ave, parking to the right of the building) as usual. Contact [email protected] for more information if needed. Cost is $45 including lunch. Water and fruit available throughout the day. Registration form is here.
