Radical Robots workshops are a fun way for young people to learn some basic engineering skills, soldering and building electronic sensor circuits, programming a Raspberry Pi single board computer and then building and testing their robot through a robotic assault course.Codes 4 Kids is a workshop that teaches kids to program a basic computer and then use that to animate their robots or hacked toys.
