Robotics Basics will enable kids to explore the role that robots have in our world and the incredible potential they have to impact people in powerful ways.  Throughout the six weeks in the Robotics Basics workshops, kids will have the opportunity to learn about robots, what they can do, how they move, and most importantly will begin to learn how computer programming and algorithms enable us to code what robots can do as we program robots to move, talk, play instruments, and even compete in obstacle courses!  (Collaboratory will launch more intermediate courses in the future, but this basic course is intended for kids who haven’t had a great extensive experience with coding or robotics.)

We’ll start off the first evening by introducing how coding and robots are connected, using Dash robots and very simple Blockly code.  After learning the basics, we’ll dabble with more advanced robots and programming concepts with other robots like Sphero, Ollie, and Dash & Dot.  Kids will work together in teams throughout Robotics Basics as they build computational and design thinking  skills like those honed by our world’s most innovative creators!

If this class sounds perfect for your child but this day or time of day doesn’t work for you, please contact us in case another section is added this winter!

100% Satisfaction Guaranteed – If after the first class, you decide this is not a great fit for your child, please contact Anna either by email, phone or in person to discuss either a full refund or registration in another Collaboratory class or workshop instead.  Collaboratory reserves the right to cancel (with 100% refund) this session if enrollment is less than 6 kids.  We believe strongly that one of the most important elements to learning at the Collaboratory is the collaboration and teamwork with other students.  We want to ensure there are enough students to create a powerful team and to grow our thinking power!
