Workshops

The MTA LEGO® Education range 2017 offers great classroom solutions for Robotics as well as a comprehensive Science & Technology range which introduces students to technology concepts in a hands-on, fun way. Implement a step-by-step program to teach technological concepts, that can span a child's school career; start with components (gears, levers, pulleys etc), then teach youngsters to design and build functional machines, and end with computer programming and sophisticated simulation using Robots.

In addition to the Robotics workshops presented by our own trainers, MTA will be supporting Professional Development Workshops conducted by our third party Training Partners.

If you are interested in hosting a Robotics workshop at your school please let us know.
