Simplebot Maker Lab

Can a dustpan or broom be a robot? What about a milk frother? Wouldn’t you love to make robots that crawl, dance, wiggle, sweep and scoop using everyday objects and simple electronics? You can!

We're turning The Learning Space into a simple bot maker lab every Tuesday during Vivid Sydney. Get together with your family and friends (in groups of up to four people), and join the fun as we guide you through making simple bots that use common robotic mechanics. 

Tickets for this event are sold for groups of two or four people who’ll work and make together. At least one person in each group must be 16 or over. As we'll be using tools and some of the processes are difficult for little fingers, this event is only suitable for children over seven years of age.

The Sydney suburb of Rhodes opens its arms to residents and visitors with Rhodes: Creative. Discover a vibrant community bringing creativity and technology to the fore.  Join us at The Connection for a program of masterclasses, workshops, activities and talks that focus on 3D printing, robots, and wearable art and tech. 

Brought to you by the City of Canada Bay Council.
