Course Overview

Lego Mindstorms is a technology-focused environment that introduces students to ‘hands-on-learning’ through the construction of robotic projects that are able to be controlled through the use of a graphical programming interface. Robotics-focused camps are a highly-engaging way in which to introduce or extend students to foundational concepts within coding whilst concurrently learning principles of robotic engineering. Throughout the this camp students will build increasingly complex hardware-software projects to eventually compete against each other in challenges similar to those found within the First Lego World League. This class is sure to light up your child’s passion for tech within a competitive and engaging learning environment.

What your child will learn

  • Mechanical design and construction fundamentals
  • Graphical programming
  • Teamwork skills
  • Working with moving parts and an introduction to engineering, including the use and calibration of sensors
  • Producing a finished competition-ready product
