Workshops for school students
The exhibition also features workshops for school students, offering them the opportunity to build their own Lego creations, explore innovative techniques of making Lego sculptures and learn about each individual model through their unique behind-the-scenes stories. 

The Robotics for Juniors workshop targets students aged 6 – 9 years. It offers them an introduction to the world of robotics by teaching them to build a robot with Lego bricks and programme it. 

The Advanced Robotics workshop for students aged 10 years and above, introduces participants to basic robotics programming skills, and teaches them how to navigate a maze with their Lego robots. 

In the Coding workshop, also designed for students above age 10, participants will learn how to code a ‘Microbit’. They will be taught to code a wearable gadget that counts physical activity and exhibits the results through an animation display.
