Learn to Build & Program Robots with LEGO Mindstorms - Aberdeen
Sun, April 23, 2017, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM BST
If you would like your child to attend and this session is full, please register for the September session. It's already filling up!
I'm sure you've heard it already but it's important - digital learning is essential for the future generation.
There are several ways to learn to code. However, making robots that actually respond to your code is arguably the most inspiring. Your child could be inspired to a future in robotics, game development, animation or app creation.
During this fun and interactive four session workshop, kids aged 9-14 will create a simple programmable robot using the LEGO Mindstorms kit. This robot will gradually become more complex as its functionality broadens with the addition of various sensors and motorised mechanisms. Programming will use the LEGO Mindstorms software.
This is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen STEM skills in the most exciting way. Participants gain a strong foundation in computational thinking. LEGO Mindstorms is a versatile system used in many schools around the world and is popular for the First LEGO League.
