Ever wanted to build your own robot? How about racing it against other teams? If this sounds like you, then why not join us at one of these STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) focused workshops for young people and big kids.

Working in teams of four, you will work with Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) engineers to build and code a drag race robot. All robots will be eligible to enter the Robot Triathlon 2019 competition event at QUAD on Robot Day, Saturday 06 July. Teams will also have the option to upgrade their robots in their own time after the workshop to compete in other challenges. No previous experience required.

Important notes:
•    Each team of four will take away only one robot to keep and bring to Robot Day on Sat 06 July.
•    If you are unable to form a team of four then we will group you with other participants to form a team on the day. The ticket price includes only one robot per team and you will have to decide who in the team will take home the robot you build. Additional robot kits may be purchased at £32.50 per kit.
•    This session is for 12-17 year olds only. For other age groups, please see Related Events below.
