  • LittleBits Electronics

When the children and parents register on the day they will be given a colored wrist band which determines which group they are in, there will be two groups.

Each group will spend 45 minutes per workshop.

Students must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or caregiver, the workshops are designed for the students and parent/guardian or caregiver to work together.


  • Laser Cutting

Students along with their caregivers will design a space themed template to be cut by the YRTS and library staff on our laser cutter. Students will be given all the necessary equipment to help bring their creations to life.

Once the kids have designed their image to be cut on the laser cutter they will begin using the Thymios and Robomasters.

  • Thymio and Robomaster Coding

Students along with their caregivers will work together to use Thymio robot or Robomaster to maneuver around an obstacle track. Students will be shown the basics on how to code the robots and see a demonstration of all the Thymios learned behaviors.


  • LittleBits Electronics

Students with assistance from caregivers will design a Mars rover with the LittleBits electronics. With assistance students will also be given the freedom to use the littlebits circuits to design there own creations. This is a fun experience for the students to learn how to create and follow instructions.
