Class Experience

In this class, students will learn how to design, make, and program their own robot at home.

Students will use the Hummingbird Robotics Kit, which is included in the price and which Robofun will mail to your address after registering.

The Hummingbird kit is comprised of lights, sensors, and motors, and allows students to build robots out of any materials, with any device, in multiple programming languages.

This Robotics class is perfect for children to exercise their imagination and creativity while developing a whole new set of skills in design and coding.

A tablet device is required for each class and a separate device for zoom. The following additional materials as well:

Laptop with a USB adapter for a one-time activation of the kit's micro bit before class.

I'd like to have the camp more than an hour and half.

Loved:

Very interesting projects

Improvements:

Perhaps better organization with getting the kids their kits and setting them up. But it’s a minor thing and Robofun was very accommodating with adjusting for things.

Love Robofun. Have been taking classes for years and if my 10 year old ever has a free day he asks me to sign him up. He's a total tech kid and they keep him engaged and learning.

From my 7 year-old: "It was fun. It was REALLY robo-fun!" He loved it and the instructor was patient, kind, and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
