Artificial Intelligence is on the rise - get on board with our Artificial Intelligence robotics workshop!

In this workshop, students will learn how to program a Lego Mindstorms EV3 to complete tasks such as walking, talking and moving.

The hands-on practical workshop will teach students fundamental programming concepts such as variables, conditions, loops and functions.

The workshop ends with a 'survival of the fittest' challenge.

All UQ Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology workshop are designed to meet the requirements of the latest school technology curriculum, helping students to develop valuable technical, analytical and problem-solving skills.

Frequently asked questions

What is the minimum age for students attending?

Students must be in high school (year 7 - 12) to attend this workshop. 

Does a student need know anything about robotics to attend?

Yes! Students will need to have experience with robotics. We recommend attending our Introduction to Robotics workshop (the day before) if you don't have any prior programming experience. 

What will students need to bring?

Nothing - just your imagination and your brain! A pen/pencil and a piece of paper may be useful, but students can also use the whiteboards in the venue for their notes and planning. 

Please don't bring any lego, and note that no food can be consumed in our computer labs.
