It was amazing to bring kids and their parents, my colleagues and friends, together through robotics. We had an enjoyable Saturday morning, where I think the parents learned as much as the kids!

On Saturday, 28 August, Professor Timothy Chung hosted an OR Family Robot challenge in the Glasgow Hall outdoor atrium. For kids age 5 - 14, this event provided an introduction to the exciting world of robotics and a brief "how to" for the LEGO Mindstorms NXT robotics kits. Participants worked in teams at "robot building stations" to construct a robot using the Mindstorms kit. These teams then had the chance to show off their robot in the inaugural "OR Robot Challenge".
