Coding with Robotics using LEGO® WeDo® and MINDSTORMS® EV3
At BRICKS 4 KIDZ® we offer two Robotics Programs – Junior Robotics with LEGO® WeDo® and LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Robotics.
LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Robotics (ages 9+)
At our MINDSTORMS® Robotics School Holiday programs at Crows Nest, kids will learn the basic principles of robotics and programming using the popular LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 System!
Kids will learn how to design and program a robot and use motors, sensors, and attachments to make their robot perform specific tasks.
Junior Robotics with LEGO® WeDo®
In our Junior Robotics Program students will learn how to write programs using LEGO® WeDo® software to control and operate the unique BRICKS 4 KIDZ® models that they build!
WeDo® software is a drag-and-drop icon-based software that provides an intuitive and easy-to-use programming environment suitable for beginners and experienced users alike.
Junior Robotics is geared to students 7 – 9 years of age. They will be working with laptops and WeDo® software that bridges the physical world, represented by our in-house models designed by our own animatronic engineers, and the virtual world of computers. Students will learn how sensors operate to control their model.
This program provides a hands-on learning experience that promotes children’s creative thinking, teamwork, and problem-solving skills, which are essential in the 21st century workplace. Junior Robotics is the perfect precursor to our LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Robotics Program.
