Robot Maze

In this free family workshop we’ll be building miniature mazes that can be explored by scurrying, wriggly robots called Hex Bugs to discover the basics of robot behaviour.

These micro insects can use their self-righting mechanisms to move between obstacles, and even flip over! You can design and make your maze, adding bridges and tunnels, and then watch your bug spring into action.

This is a free, drop-in workshop so no booking is required.

Best for children aged 3 – 9 years.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.
