Develop your own walking algorithm to bring your robot to life!

Breathe life with code. Study animal movement and translate its mechanics to code to teach your robot to walk.

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 program a complex robot 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

Developing Walking Algorithms

Program your robot to walk using Arduino/C++

Bring Your Robot to Life

Test, debug, put everything together and watch your robot come to life!

Push Your Boundaries

Keen to experiment more? Try complex manoeuvres!

*There will be 1-hour lunch break included. Lunch is provided :)

  • Apply the basics of text-based coding in C++/Arduino

  • Study real animals to understand the physics of walking and balancing

  • Apply that understanding to program a robot to balance and walk

  • Go the extra mile - experiment to see how you can get your robot walking (or running) the fastest!

What you'll learn in this 6-hour bootcamp

Cats, Horses, Spiders, Dogs - So many pairs of legs!

Understand the kinematics of walking, running and how different animals balance

The syllabus is designed such that anyone with little knowledge of robotics will understand

Aditya and Jeremy were very patient and knowledgable in their area. Thank you for these past 3 days. It has been very eventful and I really learned a lot. I had a lot of fun building my hexapod robot.

A fantastic program that engages the children on another level, unlike any ordinary enrichment classes

Whyte Labs goes beyond teaching robotics and encourages the children to think outside the box on how to develop their animal-like robot. My son looks forward to his weekly classes, no matter how tired he is. It challenges his mind and teaches him to re-trace his steps to make his robot better each time.
