During the day you will learn several techniques that will enable you to make more books at home - how to mount and display your work to make it look its best, make a book/s to store your work in and design the front cover using different materials.
Please note: there will be a page size limit of A3. This would mean that A2 sized pieces of work would have to be folded to fit.

This is for young people aged 14-25 (during school holidays).
This informal course is about having fun building a small robot that can move, see, hear and sense the world around it. Participants do not need any prior experience and this course is suitable for complete beginners. The course is ‘hands-on’ and ‘learning-by-doing’.
