Let the experienced coders embark on a digital journey!
Classes are held Monday – Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.
During this 5 day camp, your child will also get to release their inner engineer and design awesome robots using Lego Mindstorms equipment and software. Students will work in teams to build their very own robots and develop critical thinking, problem-solving and basic engineering skills by modifying and troubleshooting their creations. They will integrate programming and sensor technology to make their robots move, react and solve challenges. LEGO Mindstorms helps build science, technology, and maths (STEM) knowledge while incorporating lessons in language arts and boosting your child’s creativity.
Students will also get a chance to dabble in 3D design, making their creations come to life with our 3D printing technology.
By the end of the course, students will be able to create their own Java projects, and understand how to build and program complex robots. In one week, your child will learn more than most kids do during the whole school year.
Achievements and outcomes
Our teachers will actively record your child’s work throughout the camp and share it with you through Class Dojo – an app which allows you to see photos of your child’s work, be involved in your child’s progress and message the teachers directly if you have any questions. The children will also receive a certificate of completion on the final day.
