FREE for HIGH SCHOOLs
SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATHEMATICS (STEM) ACTIVITIES
We have various opportunities for you and your school on this page.
Please contact us to arrange a visit by your school to the exciting UJ TechnoLab.
We have a range of FREE activities and presentations across a range of topics like how to write your first program to control a robot ZERO TO PROGRAMMER IN 10 STEPS,
also HOW DOES A COMPUTER REALLY WORK?
Also, we have a short primer on how to start building your own robots at home.
These presentations range from 5 minutes to 40 minutes, according to your requirements.
This can be at our venue, or we may be able to come to you.
Group size is from 10 to as many as your venue can accommodate.
We typically cater for schools from Grade 8 through Grade 12:
1. Short 10 MIN (or long) 40 MIN presentation "BUILD THE P1X8 ROBOT - YOUR FIRST STEPS INTO the WORLD OF ENGINEERING"
3. Short 10 MIN (or long) 40 MIN presentation called "HOW DOES A COMPUTER REALLY REALLY WORK?"
[how does an electronic circuit do math and logic, etc?]
3. 40 MIN - FROM ZERO TO PROGRAMMER IN TEN STEPS (your computer classroom size).
[exciting workshop where you become a robot programmer in 10 steps which takes about 40 minutes...]
4. What is the relation between science and electronics?
[we look at the crystalline structure of silicon and how that's modified with phosphorus or
boron to produce N and P type semiconductors and how does a transistor work?

Please let us know which dates will suit your school for the above free workshops, so we can
In addition to the FREE stuff as outlined above, We also have entire programmes where teenagers can start
building their own robots and other fascinating electronics, where various charges may apply according to the
cost of the equipment involved.
Privately funded robotics programmes
(minimum group size is 10 to be viable)
4. Create a robotics group in your school where teenagers build their own desktop robot.
5. Grade 8 through Grade 12s join TechnoLab programmes at UJ Kingsway Campus.

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to tell you a little about the RobotScience project
at University of Johannesburg TechnoLab.
Our mission is to inspire teenagers to take their first steps towards becoming engineers, to give them an
introduction to some of the amazing possibilities of this field by building a small desktop robot
that programs in real text code.
With the skills teenagers acquire with us, they can build award winning entries for prestigious
competitions like the Eskom Science Fair and generally learn a great deal about the relationship between science and technology.
We believe that with the skills teenagers acquire on the RobotScience project today, their tertiary studies will
benefit and they will do well in whichever field their select.
Having a robotics programme in partnership with the University of Johannesburg Faculty of Engineering
makes your school very attractive proposition to both teenagers and parents.
We will be delighted to hear from you.
