LEGO Robotics challenge (8-15 years)

LEGO Robotics challenge

Build your own LEGO robot, program your robot, and perform a series of measurements inside a closed off “danger zone” that is inaccessible to humans.

Robots are used in many different environments at CERN that are difficult to access or where there could be potential for danger for humans.  CERN scientists have unique experience with designing, building and operating robots for different purposes.  

In this workshop, participants will assemble a LEGO Spike robot, adapt it to mount a sensor and program it to perform a series of movements and measurements. They will solve specific challenges inspired by the real challenges that engineers at CERN face.
