General Info

Note on Signing Up with Teams

Robotics is a collaborative activity. As such, this workshop has been designed for teams of 2-3 students to complete the activities together. 

Some students may have groups of friends that they would like to work with. You will be able to indicate this during the post-registration form on RobotEvents while submitting payment.

If your student does not have a group already, we will help you find a group in the morning of the workshop. Please ensure that you arrive promptly at 9AM to allow time for group matching.
