MakeX Robotics Lab Header


Are you a Robo-Whiz? Would you like to become one?

TechLabs is the exclusive organizing partner for the Global Makeblock MakeX robotics competition in Switzerland and nearby regions. Kids enrolled in this program will train to participate in this competition using the latest in STEM robotics technology! Working with the MakeBlock robotics kit, kids design, build, and program robots and develop the innovative-thinking, team-collaboration, and problem-solving skills necessary to succeed in the MakeX challenges.

Note that participation in MakeX is not required in order to join the camp and experience the thrill of designing a champion robot! Makeblock supports both mBlock, a drag-and-drop visual programming environment based on Scratch for beginners and Python or C++ for kids ready for additional programming challenges. Our curriculum provides hands-on collaborative and competitive challenges where students build robots and learn about electronics, mechanical design, code development and algorithms.
