Event description

Description

Join our coding club! These beginner classes are perfect for curious kids ages 9 and up. In this four-week course, we’ll be bringing robots to life with different types of programming.


What are Little Robot Friends?

They’re cute robot characters that inspire kids to get creative with technology. These robots are packed with smarts, sensors, and big personalities. You can program them to make expressions, sing songs, perform tricks, and play games. It’s all about learning to code in a fun and engaging way with friends!

About the coding club

We’ll help participants build their 21st-century skills with an introduction to visual coding using our LRF Blocks App. They’ll also learn fundamental coding concepts through tons of hands-on and collaborative activities. By the end of the course level up with real-world programming in Arduino (C & C++). Gain the core knowledge and skills to tackle independent coding projects with your Little Robot Friend!

Schedule

This course runs every Saturday from 10am - 12pm.

  • Week 1: Saturday, November 18, 2017

  • Week 2: Saturday, November 25, 2017
