Understanding of basic coding concepts: Introduce the fundamentals of coding, such as sequence, loops, and conditionals, through fun and interactive activities.
Knowledge of robotics components: Teach students about the different parts of a robot, including sensors, motors, and controllers, and how they work together to make a robot move and perform tasks.
Creativity and problem-solving: Encourage students to use their imagination and creativity to design and build their own robots, and challenge them to find solutions to problems that arise during the building process.
Teamwork and communication: Foster teamwork and collaboration skills by encouraging students to work in pairs or small groups to design and build their robots, and to communicate with each other effectively to achieve their goals.
Understanding of real-world applications: Introduce students to real-world applications of robotics, such as manufacturing, space exploration, and healthcare, and encourage them to think about how robots can be used to solve problems in their own lives and communities.
Information for parents
Whether your child is completely new to coding and robotics, or has completed a BlueShift camp or course before, this course is perfect for them! Bringing a laptop is recommended if possible as students learn more effectively with a device that they are familiar with.
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!
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.
Let's refocus after lunch and playtime by diving into building our robots!
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 - lets tidy up our work stations, pack up our things and get ready to go home!
My favourite part was designing my own dinosaur!

Campers should not be brought to camp if they are displaying signs of illness. In the case of a camper who has become ill during camp hours, parents will be notified immediately to pick their child up. If a child misses a day or multiple days of camp because of an illness, credit towards another camp can be arranged for when they're feeling better.
You can cancel your camp booking up to 14 days prior to the start date. If you want to cancel your camp booking less than 14 days before, you can receive 50% refund or full credit towards future courses when cancelling between 13-7 days before, or full credit when cancelling less than 7 days before. If we are unable to run our camps, you will receive credit or a full refund. If you cancel for any reason you may be liable to pay the difference if our prices increase.
(Please note credit is only valid for 1 calendar year.)
What are you doing at camps with respect to COVID-19?
At BlueShift, our top priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our students, parents and staff. That's why we have thought carefully about our upcoming camps and what we can do to ensure we keep our community safe. Please read our COVID-19 Camps Policy Overview FAQ for more information on how we are doing this.
Please be aware these policies will be shared with you in more detail closer to the beginning of camp.
What does my child need to bring to camp?
Please bring snacks, a packed lunch, and a water bottle to camps each day!
For Explorers, Adventurers, and Innovators:
Please also bring a laptop! Using a laptop from home means your child can save their own work! If you don't have a laptop to bring, you can borrow one from us when you make your booking. An iPad will not be enough for most of our courses.
Do I need to install anything prior to the camp?
Please ensure that your child's laptop has a modern web browser such as Google Chrome installed. Any additional software will be listed above under "Information for Parents."
Can I switch camp dates incase holiday plans change?
Yes! Read our CampShift policy for more information.
