First and second-grade students will enjoy building and programming a variety of kinetic projects. They will use different LEGO® parts to build robots such as a rocket ship, bunny, and soccer kicker. Children explore engineering and simple machine principles such as friction, gearing and leverage. Students will think like a programmer using the LEGO® Robotics intuitive picture-based coding software. Students will program their projects to move in accordance with sound effects and music. Students learn to build from blueprints then expand onward to customize their creations. Students are challenged with team-based tournaments that help them develop partnering skills. By the end of class, they will have developed friendships, leadership skills, and boosted their confidence.
Our STEM Education Difference:
Our core educational philosophy centers around an intimate interaction with our students. Because we know that each child learns differently and at their own pace, our 'mentors' assess and monitor your child's skill level; each class they take is matched with their skill and interests. Our curriculum and mentors focus on mastering current skills then challenge each student to get to a higher level.
Regardless of which class they take, or how many times they have taken it, our students do not repeat previous projects - they are always challenged and when they are ready they work on a new and interesting assignment.
Please remember that Robofun requires students to be provided with all utensils, water bottles, snacks and lunch for their snack and lunch times. Also, please provide sunscreen in advance for sunny days when we will go to the park at lunch time
