Mechanical Mazes workshop

We took Aether to Somerset House and ran a for a family workshop for 6+ year olds, inspired by the Game Changers exhibition.

We used the Aether platform to race robots through a maze, controlled using a series of interactive circuits – light sensors, sound and capacitive touch.

This was a fun and hands-on and collaborative introduction to electronics, robotics and physical computing, looking at:

  • how wireless technology can be used to create games and mazes.
  • microcontrollers and circuits
  • controlling robots with sensors
  • the applications of wireless electronics within art and technology
