Robotics & Lego Technic Workshop

This project was aimed at a specific age group with an interest in creating structures and vehicles from Lego technic kits and then adding a robotics and coding element to the finished design with the help of expert facilitators from FabLab Manorhamilton.

It was structured in a way to allow the participants the freedom to follow the designated technical blueprints to build models or to go off on their own tangent to build a unique model. Once finished the initial phase, the participants would then learn about robotics kits which they could add onto their finished model in order to enhance its operational ability.

Due to the specific technic models, the participants were also allowed deconstruct their creations and merge them with different models to create a new vehicle. This allowed them to experience the breaking down of said items in order to create a different end product.
