Cub Scout Coding Workshop (Ages 7-11)
$35 for a morning of introductory coding and a chance to learn about robotics and computers.
With mentoring from a high school robotics team, Cub Scouts will break into teams to build a three-wheeled robot using TETRIX Prime (a metal robot building system), wire it with motors, sensors and a Micro:bit brain, and then program the Micro:bit brain to drive autonomously and by remote control from another Micro:bit. Each Scout will receive a Micro:bit kit to take home, and the programming skills they learn can be used to make many more things with the Micro:bit micro-controller. A roster will be sent out in advance to help with leadership and carpooling. Only 45 spots and an event t-shirt provided!
Scouts BSA Robotics Merit Badge Workshop (Ages 11-17
Scouts BSA Robotics Workshop (Ages 11-17), $60 for a day of coding, building, and competition.
