Jnr 8-12 – Spike Essential

Ever wanted to work with robots? Coding and robotics are certainly going to be a big part of our future, and this session blends the fabulousness of LEGO bricks and introduces animation, movement, sensors and coding. Using the new Spike Essentials kits, we’ll explore a variety of builds and code them to perform different tasks. We’ll use a colour sensor for input and the brand new light matrix that is unique to this kit! We’ll even build a some mini-rover robots and program them to make it through a maze. The great thing about Spike Essentials is that it is a blend between the familiar LEGO bricks and plate building and introduces the more advanced Technic bricks, beams, pins and axles. This workshop will be a whole lot of fun with some great learning and skill development – even for experienced builders.
