Getting to know technology with dancing robots
"Build a dancing robot" was the motto on April 2 on the Hönggerberg campus. The workshop was part of Treffpunkt Science City.
More than 30 teenagers between 13 and 17 years participated in the workshop and soldered, decorated and programmed so-called DanceBots. "The course was completely booked out and the participants had a lot of fun," said Hanna Behles from D-MAVT, who supervised the young people together with engineering students as well as Stefan Bertschi and Philipp Reist from the Wyss Center.
The idea of the workshop is to introduce children and young adults to technology. Originally, it was developed by the Laboratory for Autonomous Systems. At the end of the workshop, all participants were able to take their “DanceBots” home with them.
