Vorpal the Hexapod for Teens

This is a super-cool opportunity for students entering grades 7-12!  In this two-day workshop (7/10 & 7/12), participants will build and program their own 3-D printed hexapod robot. This advanced six-legged robot walks, dances, scampers, and performs various tricks. It can be controlled via Bluetooth radio control and also wirelessly programmed using the MIT Scratch drag-and-drop programming system. Because it's 3-D printed, the robot can be modified and expanded for use in many activities, some of which we'll explore in this workshop. No prior experience in building or programming robots is required. Participants will leave this workshop with a greater understanding of robots, technology, and software control of machines and their own Vorpal the Hexapod!  FREE, but a $200 check made out to “Wilton Library” is required to reserve your spot.
