Fun Science Sheffield is excited to be continuing our regular Saturday morning World Education Robots (WER) training club. We are also running a one-off robotics fun day in the February half term (2020). The club and the fun day are both suitable for ages 8-14.

Saturday morning club

Each half term will comprise five weekly 90 min sessions. Children will work as groups of 2-3 robotics engineers to design, build, and code robots.

Please note that sessions can only be booked in advance as a block of four or five sessions. The total price is £40 for four sessions or £50 for five sessions.

Booked dates are not interchangeable or transferable with the dates of any future club(s). No refunds are available pro rata for missed sessions.

The WER club will run from 10:15-11:45 on 11th January, 18th January, 25th January, 1st February, and 8th February and then again on 29th February, 7th March, 14th March, and 21st March.  We will be in the Learning Room next to the cafe in Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, S7 2QW.

Regular club attendance (of at least 10 sessions) will enable children to enter official WER competitions, including potentially competing in regional, national, and even international events! Please note that most competitions have qualification requirements and additional entry fees may apply for competitions.

February Fun Day

We are very excited to be running one of our fantastic World Educational Robots (WER) activity days this February half term! Children will be working with the robots used in international WER competitions and will be placed in teams of 2-3 hands-on robotics engineers to design, build, and code their robots.

This is an advanced session involving complex equipment and requiring children to develop their problem solving, technical abilities, and resilience – all whilst having fun! The WER activity days are suitable for children age 8-12 and no previous WER experience is necessary.

The activity day will run on the 20th February from 10am-3pm in the Learning Room (next to the cafe) at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, Abbeydale Rd S, S7 2QW.

Prices: £30 per child per day
