As technology advances, more mines are turning to remotely automated machinery to do the work underground while keeping the operator safely above ground. In this exciting program, your students will have the chance to become both miners and engineers putting their coding skills to the test with some challenges using robots!

Day includes:

  • Two mining-related challenges where students will need to use Dot & Dash or Sphero to complete each portion.
  • A scheduled lunch-break. 
  • 30 minutes of free time

A more detailed schedule will be provided to you when you arrive.
