LEGO® Robotics Classes

Junior Robotics Class

Junior Robotics is geared for children 5-8 years of age. Students use LEGO® WeDo 2.0 programming software to bring to life the models they build, based upon Bricks 4 Kidz ® model plans and LEGO®educational products.

Junior Robotics Level 1 (Ages 5-7)

Junior Robotic Level 1 class is our introductory programme using LEGO® WeDo® 2.0. The programme is designed to introduce kids to robotics and basic coding principles. Combines WeDo “drag and drop” pictorial Coding / Programming software with our own Bricks 4 Kidz® models to spark and develop young students’ interest in Science, Computing, Engineering and Technology subjects.

Term 3 Theme: Harnessing Energy: Exploring what energy sources are available to us and how we can capture, convert and use them in our daily lives.

$35/90 mins class. Price including use of Bricks 4 Kidz® LEGO® WeDo 2.0 Project kit & iPad. Max number of children per class: 8

Saturday 11:00 – 12:30pm Sunday 11:00 – 12:30pm

Junior Robotics Level 2 – Sensors Introduction (Ages 6-8)

Introducing sound, tilt and motion sensors, the programme is designed to teach students robotics and coding principles. Students will learn how to write more complex programmes using LEGO® WeDo® 2.0 software to control and operate the unique BRICKS 4 KIDZ® models that they build!

$35/90 mins class. Price including use of Bricks 4 Kidz® LEGO® WeDo 2.0 Project kit, sensors and iPad. Max number of children per class: 8

Monday 3:45 – 5:15pm Saturday 2:00-3:30 pm

Junior Robotics Level 3 – Mechnical Programming (Ages 7-8)

Students will explore mechanical concepts such as speed, power, gearing, distance, and dynamics. The course will focus on key robotic and coding principles including the continuation of our Motion, Distance and Sound sensors.

They will explore the step-by-step engineering design process, understand how engineers solve complex problems, develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills, taking them one step closer to being future engineers!

$35/90 mins class. Price including use of Bricks 4 Kidz® LEGO® WeDo 2.0 Project kit, sensors and iPad. Max number of children per class: 8

Thursday 3:45 – 5:15pm Sunday 1:15-2:45pm

Motorised LEGO® Model Building Class (Ages 5+)

In these fun, educational classes, students will experience hand-on engineering fundamentals as they build motorised models using LEGO® Bricks. Bricks 4 Kidz® provides a curriculum which introduce children to science, engineering, and architecture principles.

Students will participate in our 1 hour class to explore architecture, engineering and technology concepts, constructing a new and exciting model each week. Complexity level of model will be allocated according to students’ ages and fine motor skills. Programme Overview

Term 3 Theme: Sports Science: we will look at the anatomy and biomechanics of the human body that make us capable of performing in sports.
