How much space is needed to conduct the workshops?
The amount of space needed to conduct the workshops depends on the following:

- Operation Disaster Relief: A school hall or similar space without carpet is required so we can run the robot.
- Operation Rocket Car: A school hall or similar space and an outdoor space that measures similar to the size of a tennis court, for launching the rocket is required.
