Tronbots is held at the School of Engineering LSL at the University of Waikato on Thursdays 6:30pm - 8:00pm. This is a great time for a parent to partner with their son or daughter. Maybe you and a friend are keen to have a go. Or maybe you just gotta make that bot! Parking in the Gate 1 carpark off Knighton Road is free after 4:30pm. Follow the onsite map to the Large Scale Lab or click here for their online map.

Shannan has helped turn the mysteries and complexities of robotics into something that is tangible, achievable and most importantly, fun.
