Robogals Brisbane invites you to attend our Girls in Robotics Day. This workshop aims to extend the students' problem solving and engineering skills by building an interactive game using Arduino. Participants will learn how to set up simple circuits and use the Arduino with other electronic parts to control lights and buzzers. By the end of the workshop, students will have built a music game for the Arduino which they can continue to modify at home. The workshop is also an opportunity to interact with university students studying engineering and to meet other girls interested in STEM.

This workshop is at Advanced level and is suitable for students in grades 7-12. No knowledge of Arduinos is required for participation in the workshop.

The cost of the event includes an Arduino kit which the participants keep after the workshop. The kit contains an Arduino Uno-based microcontroller, a breadboard, LEDs, buttons, resistors, wires and potentiometers.

Lunch is included.
