On October 29th, our robotics team, Muncie/Delaware Robotics, hosted a level 1 EV3 LEGO workshop at the Suzanne Gresham center. The event was hosted to encourage children about engineering. The workshop lasted about five hours with a lunch break halfway through. The turnout was a full class, fourteen participants.
Some of our team’s high school students led the workshop, showing the participants the tasks they would have to perform and how to program their robots to do the tasks. There were various sensors that the participants had to put on their robots to preform the tasks required. The participants understood the material well, and were tuned in the entire time.
After the event when their parents picked them up, the participants were happy to explain what their robots did. We asked one of the participants what their favorite thing about the workshop was, and their response was “My favorite part was getting to tell it what to do, and program it.”
