MiCLab Youth Club feat the Coventry Transport Museum Learning Team – Coding & Programming

Spend the days designing prototypes, programming different devices and testing a variety of machines.

Book Online | £16.98 (including fees) Per Person*

*Price includes lunch and admission to the museum

Aimed at ages 11-16 but all are welcome

Join our expert Learning Team in this MiCLab Youth Club series and spend the days designing prototypes, programming different devices and testing a variety of machines. Be prepared to make automated vehicles, test car alarms and get your vehicles to escape a maze while spending time with like-minded people. Lunch will be included in the cost for this day.

Tuesday 13 August:

Combine your design and programming skills to create your own miniature electric vehicle with automated parking maneuvers. In this session we will be using Polydron building sets to design and build our own model cars and adding motorised wheels and Crumble boards to develop algorithms that allow the cars to parallel park themselves.

Wednesday 14 August:

Explore the use of physical programming to create sensors that can read and calculate distance and speed. In this session we will use Micro:bits to create a tool that can use the rotation of a wheel to calculate the speed of a moving vehicle and to read the distance it has travelled while moving.

Wednesday 21 August:

Explore the use of physical programming to create safety and security features for a car. In this session we will use Micro:bits to create alarm systems for a car door, product testing each other’s designs to see who can create the most thief proof car alarm.

Wednesday 28 August:

Explore the use of physical programming to create a maze solving robot. In this session we will combine our Polydron building sets with the physical programming components of Crumble to attempt to create automated vehicles that can find their way through a maze.
