Large robot workshops

0.10 GBP
Big ‘bot workshops take place at your venue. I turn up with everything required for the build which takes a whole day and can involve up to 30 participants (although the fewer the better as it allows me to give more one-to-one tuition). The morning session is devoted to dismantling the plastic based WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment). Participants then categorising it, whilst I teach how it works and how to repair it (6 million Hoovers are thrown away each year for example-most with simple faults). The afternoon session is devoted to attaching the bits generated from the morning to the wooden frame to complete the sculpture. I always have brilliant feedback from these workshops as they tick all the boxes of recycling, design, building techniques and working in groups to achieve a goal. The completed sculpture is left with the venue (often sitting in the school reception area to show off to visitors!). Prices start at £400 plus the cost of travel from Manchester
