Learning outcomes

Using Python for Robotics: Teach students the basics of Python programming language and how to use it to control and program robots.

Understanding of robotics components: Introduce students to robotics components such as sensors, actuators, and controllers, and explain how they can be programmed using Python to control the movement and behavior of a robot.

Hands-on experience with robotic design: Provide opportunities for students to work in teams to build and program their own robots using Python and LEGO SPIKE and BBC Micro:Bit

Creative problem-solving: Encourage students to use their creativity and problem-solving skills to design and develop their own robots and algorithms, program them using Python, and to come up with innovative ways to solve real-world problems using robotics and programming.


Information for parents

This course will use robotics kits primarily programmed using Python with web-based software on laptops. Bringing a laptop is recommended if possible as students learn more effectively with a device that they are familiar with.

Camp structure

This is a sample schedule for a typical day at camp. In between each lesson there will be a 15-minute snack break, or a 1-hour lunch and play break.
10.00 - 11.00
Lesson 1
First off we'll get to know our teacher and classmates through some great mini games. Once we're all friends, we'll be introduced to our activity for the day. Let's jump in to coding!
11.15 - 12.30
Lesson 2
Now that we've had a healthy snack, we're ready to get right back into our activity. We'll carry on flexing our creative muscles by designing, coding and building our project.
12.30 - 13.30
After half an hour for lunch it's time for some offline, outdoor time. Students take part in activities ranging from inflatable obstacle course races to football tournaments, scavenger hunts to water games (fingers crossed for some sunny weather!).
13.30 - 14.45
Lesson 3
Let's refocus after lunch and playtime by diving into building our robots!
15.00 - 16.00
Lesson 4
It's time to finish off our project for the day and show it off to the rest of the class. Time has flown by - let's tidy up our work stations, pack up our things and get ready to go home!
My favourite part was making the texture packs
