This year the Sydney Science FestivalĀ  during National Science Week is going to be HUGE! The Children’s Discovery Museum has collaborated with the Australian Museum to provide a range of events, one of which is the Edison Robots workshop. It aims to keep students up to speed with the rapid advancements in the robotics field by using per-programmed barcoding systems with “functionalities such as line tracking and remote-control driving”. Furthermore students and you have the opportunity to learn about programming Edison, using a drag and drop graphical software.

Volunteers will be expected to arrive at the venue 15 minutes before the start of the workshop, and assist in museum staff throughout the day.
