This is Auckland's Premier Robotics Club for children aged 7 to 12. Currently running sessions at 6 North Shore primary schools and growing every week.

The club use LEGO Mindstorms and K'nex to help develop children's future ability to become our next scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.

LEGO mindstorms have been designed to enable children to build and programme robots to do what they want!

All children will use K'nex, this will develop children’s understanding of structures, forces and simple machines similar to the way that Meccano educated an earlier generation. K'nex will help develop skills useful to build mindstorm robots at a later date.

This holiday programme will have two separate groups divided between ability. Those that have either been on previous holiday programmes or after school clubs will go into an advanced group.

Children new to Roboclub will be in the beginner group. There each child will learn about the basic mindstorm components during these 5 days. They will learn how to make their robot move, sense its environment and talk using the child's own voice.

Roboclub is managed and run by qualified New Zealand teachers. In addition skilled RoboClub coaches and tech experts are their to help. Together they guide and entertain children throughout this week long robotic extravaganza.

What will the children do:
K'nex
Powered car races
loads of construction sheets
Unique Roboclub challenges
Mindstorm
Programming basics and advanced (dependent on ability)
Mindstorm construction
First Lego League Challenge tables
Robowars
