Build your own transformer

Students will form teams to see who can build the fastest and strongest robot.

Each team will be given a robotic kit containing motors, wheels, engines, and a remote. Using hundreds of parts, the children can hone robotic skills to free-build their own robots and compete in Minds in Motion robot battles.

The workshop is open to Bayonne residents, boys and girls, ages 7-13.

The three-week workshop will take place on Saturdays March 14, March 21, and March 28 from 9 a.m. to noon.
