Robot Cubes Workshop
Have you ever thought of coding without writing a line of code? A robot with no limbs?
CubeletsTM is a set of colourful cubical blocks, each equipped with an ability to "sense", "think" or "act" – the essential functions of a robot. The blocks are magnetically connected, so you can easily put them together or pull apart to construct robots of various shapes. In this workshop, you do not need to learn any programming language. Just be creative and feel free to experiment and improve. Try making use of different blocks to build a robot and accomplish a task. Be hands-on and heads-on, come and build your unique robot!
