One-to-one tuition for £140 half day/£280 full day.

Suitable for children aged 6-9 years old.

Is your child a budding artist or an engineer who loves to build and create things? Do they take things apart to figure out how they work? Or maybe they just love LEGO and you’d like to channel their passion into something more educational?

Detailed Information

This course introduces children aged 6 to 9 to design, engineering and robotics through a series of imaginative projects and challenges. Each session, students will work on new themes, from animals to space. As such, our students are always given a new challenges, stretching their imagination and demonstrating a practical application of technology. They complete these projects by building robots that use Lego Wedo®, a kit designed especially for children. These have previously included an X-wing flying machine, a racing car, and a pen-holding robot that can create colourful drawings!

Whether your child is completely new to coding and robotics, or have attended a blue{shift} camp before and took part in one of our core curriculum courses and wants to try something more hands-on and robotics-based, this course is perfect for them!
