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. 💪

Program Outline

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 :)

  • Learn how to observe animals and translate nature's design into a bio-inspired robot

  • Learn about the various electronic components and system architecture that links them together to form an advance robotic system

  • Hardware is rarely perfect. Learn to troubleshoot and debug wiring and mechanical assemblies

What you'll learn in this 6-hour bootcamp

Build and wire

Assemble your walking robot from scratch

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.
