Looking to discover the power of robots? Join Museums Victoria for a fun, hands-on, one hour and 15 minute workshop where you can explore how simple programs can control complex machines.

In this introductory workshop, discover how robots move, sense and respond their environment using mBot robots and iPads. Working in pairs with a parent/carer, children will write instructions for their robot using block-based programming language, and use STEM skills such as problem solving, creativity and innovation to overcome a series of challenges. Can you program a self-driving car? Or dancing party robot? Or a sneaky snooping robot?

This workshop is the perfect way to step into the exciting world of robotics and coding, and explore future STEM careers.

Argentinian Tango Classes & Social Events

Tango is a beautiful way for people to express themselves, no matter who they are, where they come from and whether they in fact speak the same language.

Speaking tango is all that is required. On the dancefloor, everything becomes irrelevant, apart from the music and the embrace.
