We provide robot building workshops for individuals and groups.
For a fantastic present why not treat your loved one or yourself to a robot building day with me in my studio in Sandbach. You can choose bits from my vast collection, or bring your own and I will show you how to use the tools and equipment to create your very own robot! Suitable from age 7 years to grown up kids.
Are you looking for diversionarty activities for kids or young people? Are you looking for something hands-on, fun, unique and interactive?
I provide all the resources and equipment to deliver Robot Building Workshops that will engage even the hardest to reach kids. You just need to provide the venue and the group.
I offer 3 types of group robot workshop. All are suitable for children 7 years old and up and we can tailor them to suit your individual needs.
1) Tinkerbot (small) Workshops.
These take around 2 hours and each participant leaves with their own robot.
2) Medium 'bot Workshop.
Each participant leaves with their own robot. This takes about 4 hours to build.
3) Large 'Junkbot' Robot workshop.
This is a full day.
With these workshops, I provide a car full of WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment), a wooden frame and all the tools and hardware required to create a sculpture.
After a safety introduction to the tools we will use, the kids get an item of WEEE in pairs with the aim of dismantling it safely. Once dismantled the waste is categorised and the kids move on to designing part of the sculpture in pairs.
The afternoon session begins with instructions as to how to use tools and connect things together. The kids then fix their pieces onto the frame and create the robot. Once finished, the venue is left with the sculpture. This workshop works well with up to 15 kids plus at least one adult/ teacher. It can be the same group of 15 or a class of 30 split into morning and afternoon sessions.
