Lego Mindstorms are programmable "bricks" from Lego that can be combined with electric motors, transmitters, ultrasonic sensors, ultraviolet, color and light as well as pulleys (such as gears, axles, beams, and hydraulic components) suitable to build robots and other automated or interactive systems.
In this workshop the children will create a robotic system for color sorting, which will accept random colored legos and will sort them by a defined color order and by input order.

Raspberry Pi is a pocket computer of the size of a credit card. Its low cost $35 (the Zero version costs $5) combined with its small size and performance make it ideal for manufacturing many kinds of applications.
In this workshop children will "save the world" via a game that will run on Raspberry Pi.
