Do you love robotics? Are you just curious about it? Or you just want to have fun and play around with LEGO robots? If you answer YES to one of these questions, join the LEGO Recreational Robotics event and share your passion for robotics with other MIT Students. The event is meant to be fun and casual, and yet educative.
In the first section we will briefly introduce the basic hardware and software components of LEGO maindstorms EV3, highlighting useful, ready to use, features and functions of the platform with practical demos ran on actual robots. All the topics are presented in a relaxed, not-too-technical way. Attendees can interact with the robots, ask questions, give their contribution, and share experiences. The format is pretty much open.
In the second section participants will have the chance to play around with the robots using their own smartphone or the gadget we provide. The adventurous who already have knowledge of the platform can upload and run their own code. For everyone else no previous experience nor coding skills are required. This section is conceptually unbounded: everyone can remotely control the robots, touch them, interact with them, assembly, disassembly... explore the platform, move around the code blocks. Most important, we hope this experience will tickle your curiosity and interest and have you interact with your (human) peers and exchange opinions, feedbacks, rise questions, laugh, invent... finally MAINDSTORMING!
