Robot Olympics

Hack, build and code your own robot in this fast paced half-day session. Learn about physical computing, micro-controllers and electronics, whilst also developing prototyping skills to give your robot form.

What to expect

Hack, build and code your own robot to compete in the Design Museum's own Robot Olympics. Learn about physical computing, micro-controllers and electronics whilst also developing prototyping skills to give your robot form.

You will be introduced to mechatronics, tinker with BBC micro:bits and learn how to code a working robot with simple functionality.

This short session will involve hacking and rapid prototyping, finding out about open source coding and how digital and analogue design come together.

This workshop is aimed at beginner to intermediate level, with options for participants who have already used the BBC micro:bit to take things further.
