Robotics Festival – Tamworth

18th October 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

What is a Robotics Festival?

Tablet Academy would like to offer schools, colleges and educational organisations the opportunity to host or take part in a FREE Robotics Learning Festival. These events offer teachers and pupils the opportunity to experience a wide range of Robotic solutions specifically designed for the classroom.

The details…

The Robotics Learning Festival is divided into two workshops: Each workshop is designed for up to 30 pupils consisting of 1 teacher and up to 5 students from 6 different schools. Within the workshop groups complete a number of challenges involving a range of ‘Classroom Ready Robotic Solutions’. The challenges will link to STEM subjects including computing, mathematics and science. The same content is repeated in both workshops.

Morning Pupil Workshop (09:30-12:00)

Afternoon Pupil Workshop (13:00-15:30) 

About the STEM Bus

The double decker bus was originally purchased by RAF Cosford with financial support from the RAF Benevolent Fund to act as a mobile community PlayBus.

In May 2017, RAF Cosford partnered with Tablet Academy to convert the bus into a mobile STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) classroom through which to co-develop and co-deliver a range of exciting, hands-on activities at schools and public events throughout the Midlands.

It’s purpose is to bring STEM experiences to children of all ages and in doing so help close future skills gap identified within the UK STEM industries.

The technology on-board such as tablets, computers, robots, interactive touch panels and more have been kindly donated by a number of industry partners with financial support from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

What’s the cost?

Tablet Academy are able to deliver these events for FREE!
