Robo-Tech Fest

This year’s Robo-Tech Festival features in-person STEM education workshops.

APRIL 23rd, 2023 — 11am to 3pm

Robo-Tech Fest is open to the public and designed for family members of all ages, with hourly workshops that are often free or very low cost thanks to sponsorship support from the Port of Long Beach. Workshop topics often include marine-based activities, recycling and how the port impacts our local waters, as well as early engineering, robotics, and physical science. Click here to see the current list of workshop opportunities available for registration.

Robo-Tech Fest is a unique Long Beach Science-Tech-Engineering-Mathematics event held annually that invites school-aged youth, pre-K to high schoolers, and their families to experience exciting hands-on STEM workshops and activities. This year’s in-person workshops will be hosted at Long Beach City College. All onsite/in-person activities follow safe COVID-19 Response Protocols.

Workshop details will be updated right up to the day of event. Click here to see the full list of workshop opportunities, space availability, and to register. Some of the fun programs from last year’s line-up include:

BioScience: Make A Lung – Students (grades 3+) build an mechanical lung to observe the mechanics of air flow and air pressure. 

Remote Robotics – Students (grades 4+) via Zoom OR In-Person experience sending instructions to remote robots to accomplish the behaviors and task goals on our space grid, a taste of what it’s like to drive the NASA rover on Mars

Kubo Robotics — Students (Pre-K to 1st) alongside a parent/guardian, will learn how to program a Kubo robot to complete a challenge mission.

Early Engineering with LEGO — Students (Grade 2-5) will utilize the Engineering Design Process to create a grabber tool using only LEGO’s to lift objects out of a container to win prizes.

Make-iT Fun Paper Chase — Students (Grade 1-5) will learn how to make electricity move on paper to turn on a light bulb. Students will then make their own circuits to take home.

Root Robotics — Students (Grade K to 2) will learn how to program an iRobot Root to draw a pizza and learn the basics of coding commands.

Scratch Jr Coding — Students (K to 2) will use an iPad to learn how to program using ScratchJr and create their own unique story.
