 drawings with simple elecronics. Additionally, there will be a

 robot even further using sensors, coding, and additional materials.
 
 The day will begin at 10am with introductions and a presentation of
 Salvius the Robot. After the presentation, participants will separate
 into their specific workshops, joining again for a pizza lunch as well
