The Mars Rover Challenge is Coming and Starlab is celebrating in their favourite way; by building stuff and teaching people to code.
The ME Program is inviting schools who have been given StarLab kits as part of our STEM grants scheme to join us with a couple of your favourite students for a fun day of building and coding with the engineers from Obelisk systems.
We will start the day with an introduction to Python and StarLAB then we will move on to building the Rover. Once you have built the rover, we will give you a headstart on the Challenge by taking you through the basics of how to code it.
