LEGO Robotics Workshop for kids
Sun, 8 January 2017, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM EST
Learn robotics with LEGO Education WeDo. Build snapping alligators, race cars, and spinning robots, then program them with the WeDo visual drag-and-drop programming software.
In this kids robotics course, students are taught engineering basics with an emphasis on exploration and trial and error field-testing. Instead of simply “snapping bricks together,” students are encouraged to think critically about how and why their design needs to adapt to changing conditions. Our guided, personalized instruction allows younger kids to understand more complicated engineering techniques such as gear use, pulleys, and inclined planes.
LEGO Mindstorm EV3:
Design awesome machines with the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Base Set and Software. Using visual drag-and-drop programming software, build a drag racer that speeds up as you cheer louder or a guard robot that growls at nearby intruders.
In this class, students experiment and discover engineering basics via trial and error field testing. Rather than just “snapping bricks together,” students learn critical thinking skills and modify their robot designs based on varying conditions. The course exposes students to more complex engineering techniques such as pulleys, inclined planes, and gear use. Let’s get building!
