Mars: The Robots Have Landed Workshop

Interested in learning more about robots and how code is used to control their movements? In this introduction to computer coding workshop participants will use colour and block coding to direct tiny Ozobot robots through a series of Mars related challenges. We will also explore how the Perseverance Rover and Ingenuity Helicopter will be used in upcoming missions to Mars.

This program is recommended for children ages 7 – 12. Children must be accompanied by adults. Adults are encouraged to participate in the workshop with their children.

Feel free to come dressed as your favourite robot, martian or space traveller for Halloween!

Select from one of four time slots (10:00am, 11:30am, 1:00pm or 2:30pm) to claim a spot for your group. By registering for a time slot you are permitted to bring a group with a maximum of 4 people to the event.

We will be hosting 6 groups during each time slot. Your time slot will include 30 minutes in our Cosmic Courtyard Gallery and one hour to complete the workshop.

Tickets are by donation, with a recommended value of $12 per person in each group.

The safety of all visitors and staff is our priority. We want to welcome you in a safe and comfortable environment. We hope that you will enjoy being back at the Centre and reconnecting with our programs and activities.

Workshops will begin promptly at their scheduled times. Please arrive early to allow time for check-in out in front of the Space Centre.
