The event is part of a series of Immersion days to be held this year. This Immersion day is free and is aimed at school groups looking for a way to start their robotics program or club.  School groups need to arrive with an EV3 or Spike Prime or mBot Ranger robot (built following the RoboCoast instructions on the website), USB cable and laptop (with LEGO EV3 education or SPIKE education or mBlock 5 PC version software installed), between every 2 students. Each school may bring 20 students.  We will be able to confirm if you can bring more students once final numbers are counted after each school has responded whether they are attending or not.
We do have some loan equipment available for schools, please indicate your needs in the registration (1 laptop and robot between 2 students).

All robots need to arrive at the Immersion day built - INSTRUCTIONS for building the EV3, Spike and mBot Ranger robots are on the resources page at Department of Health Covid safety measures will be implemented at this event.
