TIMETABLE: FIND A CLASS THAT SUITS YOUR SCHEDULE

In the RobotScience project teenagers age 14+ (Grade 8 onwards) build their own fully programmable robots, which introduces teenagers to the practical use of electronics and programming to control stuff.

Pre-teens interested in robotics, but not yet capable of using hot soldering irons without burning themselves, can attend a UJ TechnoLab Holiday Club to program the robots.

Holiday Club bookings (Grade 5-7): Estelle Momberg: estellem(delete-this-anti-spam-text)@uj.ac.za.

RobotScience bookings (Grade 8-12): info(remove-this-spam-blocker-text)@robotscience.co.za
