Event date: Sunday June 10th Event Time: 9am~13pm

The workshop goal is to have a group of 40 people building robots together as a team work.

Workshop Details

  • The workshop is about building robots like the Chopstick Junior of Lutz.
  • 2 robots will be build by the end of the workshop
  • There will be 40 people divided in 2 teams, the first one will be from 9am to 11am and the second one will be from 11:30am to 13:30pm.
  • The participants are going to be 40 to 60 years old Italians, top insurance sellers, 50% do not speak english and they are all generally not tech savvy.
  • The first team will build the structure, the second team mount the electronics.
  • Each team need to be divided in 2 subgroups. Each subgroup will develop 1 robot.
  • XCJ staff
    • Lutz will be the teaching leader
    • 2 Italian speakers are required from XCJ to assist (Lio and Andrea).
    • They also require a fourth assistant, possibly female (Min Lin).
  • The step by step building instructions will be projected on the wall during the workshop to facilitate the building.
  • The aim of the workshop is to promote team building among the groups and expose them to an innovative tech world.
    • So our workshop do not focus on let them understand how to make a robot working, but to successfully accomplish the mission together.
    • To achieve this we probably want to pre-assemble some parts of the robots, and make the overall process easier, more focused on the team building than on the technological part.
