At Southampton Robotics Outreach, we organise robotics events to inspire and promote Engineering and Computer Science. Things we do:
- Play with expensive robot hardware
- Build industry-standard hardware and software
- Run big competitions & events
- Teach & inspire students interested in STEM
The highlight of our year is the Computing, Electronics and Robotics Summer School in August. It's a 5-day residential robotics course where 16 teams of 6th form students learn how to build and compete a robot all within the week.
We also run workshops for children as young as 8 using a variety of robot types. Things we've done in the past:
- A workshop at the National Scout Rifle Shooting Championships using our summer school demo robots
- Teaching Winchester cubs to make Lego robots follow a path along a table
- A drop-in robotics stand in Westquay shopping centre
Come and visit us at Bunfight in the Jubilee sports hall on September 29! Or see our website for an up-to-date list of what's on.
