About this event

This project is an IET/IMechE-funded robotics holiday club for 11-15 year olds living in areas of high socio-economic deprivation in Oxford.  Throughout the week, participants will learn to program a BBC microbit then design and build their own robot to follow a winding path. At the end of the week, they’ll then get to take their robot home. They will also attend visits to engineering companies and organisations, to show the range of opportunities available within engineering, and the different routes to a career.
We are looking for a diverse group of volunteers to help with the workshops throughout the week.  Training, lunch and agreed travel expenses will be provided.
If you are interested in helping please can the contact Sarah Townson at Science Oxford:
