Learn robotics in a fun and exciting environment! The LEGO World Robot Olympiad is a worldwide robotics competition that approaches issues in today’s world through creative problem solving and team building.
Hatch Makerspace will host teams for the 2018 season, alleviating most of the burden of a new team’s startup cost ($450-$1000!), this includes:
• Use and access to our Lego Mindstorm Education and Expansion kits
• Use and access to our laptops with Lego Mindstorm Software
• Coaching from our stellar volunteers
• Support from the WRO MA/CT organizers in the form of competition mats, the official game kit, and lesson plans
There will be a mandatory information session for potential team members on Thursday, June 21 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Hatch Makerspace at 20 Summer Street in Watertown. Show up to learn how it all works, see a demonstration of the robots, and form your team! The MA/CT organizer for the WRO will be at Hatch to answer questions and guide you through team formation.
Parents/guardians, please plan to attend.
The 2018 season is themed Food Matters. The complete rules can be found here: wro-association.org/wro-2018/games-rules
