In this four hour workshop you will learn basic robot construction skills, including soldering. Whether you're already a maker or just getting started, you will have a blast as we guide you through the process of building your own Beetle-Bot, a self-guided robot that detects and avoids obstacles in its path. The Beetle-Bot is simple by robot standards but will surprise you with its complex behaviour. Will your bot be the fastest through the maze?
Note: Class includes a 30 minute break

Simon Lyons of MakerMobile.org has been driven to take things apart from an early age – sometimes with shocking results! He is a physicist by qualification and inclination, and always has several projects and experiments on the go.  Electronics and embedded systems is his passion – in other words, making things that do things! Simon taught high school physics and math in Vancouver for four years before co-founding MakerMobile.org: a mobile hackspace, laboratory and art studio that aims to inspire and empower youth to become the next generation of creators. Learn more about Simon and the MakerMobile here.
