RoboSlam is a robot-building workshop for beginners, which we have been running in a variety of settings for the last couple years. Our workshops are staffed entirely by volunteers, mostly staff and students from the Dublin Institute of Technology, and our aim is to introduce people to programming, electronics and robotics by guiding them through the construction and programming of an autonomous robot in just a few hours. Getting started in robotics can be costly, so one of the most important principles of RoboSlam is to keep our robot recipe ultra low-cost.
The second workshop is Breadboard Games: building retro arcade games on a breadboard. This used to be known as ArcadeSlam but we decided to go with “Breadboard Games” instead.
