About the Course

Short introduction to robots and how they are used in different industries including medicine, manufacturing, and scientific research (e.g. mars rover). 

The class is split into two teams and the activity instructions are explained. Each team member has around 1-2minutes to quickly become familiar with the VEX robot and score points for their team. 

The game rules change throughout the session, challenging the team to adapt. A discussion at the end around learners ability to pick up a new technology and the pressure involved in taking part in the challenge. 

This workshop forms part of Engineering Our Future day.
