Virtual Robotics Workshop
This season Santa needs some help delivering presents! A 2-day robotics workshop will prepare all inquiring elves (students) with the necessary skills to complete this task! Taught by the Sharon Robotics Teams, elves will learn how to program a LEGO EV3 Mindstorm Robot and have some fun delivering gifts over Christmas break!
Students must currently be in 4th thru 6th grade to participate. Applicants can be from any school district in the Mercer/Lawrence/Trumbull County Region.
Workshop will run on December 28th and 29th from Noon - 3 PM on both days. Prior to the workshop, students will watch a brief introduction video.

Participants will have a two-day opportunity to program an EV3 Mindstorm Robot. Students will challenged to guide Santa through the town delivering gifts! Students will focus on beginner robot behaviors and no prior knowledge is needed to participate.
