Anyone Can Make a Robot

Maker Faire NY

Make Faire Robot

PICAXE are proud to have sponsored four hands on robot building sessions at Maker Faire New York 2012.

The event was a huge success with a high demand for the sell-out workshops, The feedback from all the attendees was 100% positive and many thanks to all the hard work put in by Andrew and Chris as they ran the sessions.

All 100 attendees built and took home their very own PICAXE robot, and Andrew says "I think we could have taught workshops all day and never met the demand...!"

For more details and pictures of the robot please see:
