Pre-requisite: Walking Robots Bootcamp
JustCo at Cross St Exchange, 18 Cross St
Slot 1: Thur, 9 June
Slot 2: Thur, 23 June
10am - 5pm (6 hrs)
For ages 11 & up
Build the brains and the body of a bio-inspired walking robot from scratch!
Get your hands dirty. Assemble, wire, test and get a taste of the real and raw experience of building your own complex machine.
Get to tinker with Qubo, a hexapod walking robot kit designed by Whyte Labs, during the program!
Learn Through Exploration and Activate Your Curiosity
Because we believe that the best learning happens when students actively engage, get curious and are encouraged to explore. The journey is more important than the outcome.
A 100% Hands-On Experience
Learn from instructors who have been there and done that - Whyte Labs' co-founders and leading robotic researchers, Aditya and Jeremy will guide you through what it takes to assemble a complex robot from the ground up and get it walking.
Whyte Labs doesn't spoon-feed solutions. Process over outcome - that is the true and lasting value of learning.
This course isn't just about learning robotics. Lots of valuable lessons to draw from, including witnessing how adults encounter and overcome challenges. Our kids need to grow up being comfortable with making mistakes, failing, picking themselves up and not giving up. 💪
Test and Troubleshoot
Test and debug to ensure everything is working in sync
Moment of Truth: Can it walk?
Use our sample code to test if your robot can walk!
*There will be 1-hour lunch break included. Lunch is provided :)

Animal anatomy and robot design
Draw inspiration from nature
Intro to Biorobotics
by Aditya and Jeremy
It was challenging and fun. With the help of my instructors, I was able to get the robot walking!
The camp was very engaging as making robots move is something you don’t do in school. It gave me the opportunity to be able to build an actual walking robot. Going forward I am keen to explore more on various types of things I can do with the robot, even beyond walking!

Thank you Whyte Labs for inspiring the children that dreams do come true!
It was an eye-opener for my son to be able to build a walking robot from scratch. The process was enriching as he could learn to identify issues and overcome problems. Participants were thrilled when their robots ‘came alive’. The satisfaction from success was beyond description.
