In this special workshop, The MidKnight Minions team will lead fun-filled activities around Robotics. Participants will learn to build simple robot attachments, understand basic components of building a robot, observe how mechanical elements like gears, sensors, and motors function and try playing a few games using robot prototypes.

The MidKnight Minions are the 2016 North Jersey FIRST LEGO League State Champions for Robotic Performance and have been actively participating in several education events to help spread their excitement about STEM and share their experiences with other girls.
