The Simplyhealth Great Aberdeen Run returns to the city on Sunday 26 August - sign up now for the 10K or Half Marathon!
For over five hundred years, Old Aberdeen has been one of the great centres of learning in the North of Scotland. There can be no better place to celebrate Aberdeen's greatest thinkers, scientists, explorers, inventors, writers and gardeners (yes, we do mean gardeners). We'll explore the hidden places in this historic burgh, to tell the stories of some great Scots whose achievements did not get the recognition they deserved.
During these very hands-on sessions, children aged 7-11 years will work together to build and program travelling robots using the Lego Wedo 2.0 kit and Scratch software. They will gain a robust understanding of how they may build a variety of mechanisms using spur gears, bevel and semi-bevel gears, and worm gears! Mechanisms include driving robots, two-legged walkers, four-legged-walkers, and a worm-geared crawler. They will also have the opportunity to customise their robots.
