Sonic Rover Bot & Trebuchet MINDSTORMS® EV3 Advanced Robotics

Lollipop’s Playland Bayswater
Bayswater, Western Australia 6053

Experience the cutting edge of technology with the introduction of LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Advanced Robotics. Students will be captivated as they incorporate the newest generation of motors, sensors and software by programming their commands directly into the intelligent brick.


Sonic Rover Bot


The Sonic Bot detects and avoids obstacles using the ultrasonic sensor. The EV3 program controls the robot’s actions. The sensor tells the robot when it hears something that it doesn’t want to bump into. This is similar to how bats use sound waves to navigate in the dark. Bats make high pitch sounds that echo off of objects that the bats cannot see. The sound waves bounce off the object and the bat can determine the size and distance of the object based on the pitch and timing of the echo.




This Trebuchet is a modern take on a medieval siege engine. A Trebuchet is a type of catapult that uses a heavy counterweight to throw its projectiles. Pull the arm back into the set position, lock it in place and load your projectile.
