Overview:

Kids will learn to build various robotics projects then learn to control them using easy to learn visual coding. This program introduces kids in grades 3-6 to:

  • How robotics work
  • Coding basics
  • How robots and machines are assembled
  • How to control robots and inventions using code
  • How to assemble components to make different types of projects
  • Utilize computational reasoning to solve problems
  • Work collaboratively to re-design projects, for example:
    • In lesson 1 students will invent a score-tracking soccer game
    • Once it’s built they will work in groups to customize and enhance their invention to create a 2 person game by changing circuits, code and gamplay
  • Use Ozobots and Ozoblocky to create fun interactive robot programs
