Robotics, Engineering Concepts,

and Programming all in one!

Our workshops designed by Technology in Learning provide a perfect way to introduce the concepts of robotics, engineering, and programming.   

Using the Thymio II, Ozobot, or Lego WeDo 2.0 and Mindstorm educational robots, children learn basic design and programming techniques and use them to discover solutions for fun challenges in a hands-on approach.  

Robotics

 Children discover how robots operate as autonomous systems and learn about their environments.  Because robots provide instant gratification and feedback, they provide a natural way to approach computing through an exploration of the physical world.  

Hands-on Approach

Engineering Concepts

Every child has access to their own Thymio II, Ozobot, or WeDo2  or Mindstorm kit and touch screen laptop or tablet.  Children will learn how to program using Aseba's VPL (Visual Programming Language), Blockly, and text based programming.

Children will learn basic design and engineering techniques and use them to discover solutions for exciting tasks and challenges.

Projects & Challenges

Children learn how to manipulate the robot's sensors and experiment using design techniques in order to creatively solve engaging projects and challenges.

Coding & Gaming

 Offered on Drop-in Days*

Registered Courses Fridays: 

15:15 - 16:00

16:15 - 17:00

17:15 - 18:00

CHF 35.-- / Session

This course strives to inspire and educate kids with coding skills for the 21st century.   Our curriculum, designed by Technology in Learning, uses Scratch, Hopscotch, Tynker,  Micro:bit, and Minecraft Education Edition to design and create a range of projects from websites, games, and even artificial intelligence!

Scratch and Tynker provide innovative visual coding languages, making coding digestible and fun. Kids love to engage with their game-based approaches. 

Want to create your own Mods in MInecraft?  Want to design your own game?  Students will use the 4 basic concepts in coding – variables, conditionals, loops, and functions – while having fun exploring new trends in technology. 

Coding

 Children discover how to solve problems and challenges through coding.  They learn the basic fundamentals of designing a program using a game based approach, allowing them to focus on the logic behind the code.

Projects & Challenges

Children learn how to plan and experiment using design techniques in order to creatively solve engaging projects and challenges.

Hands-on Approach

Every child has access to their own touch screen laptop or tablet, and programming software.  Children will learn how to program and create projects and games using Scratch, Hopscotch, and Tynker.

Learn by Discovery

Children will learn through guided experimentation and discovery problem solving skills in a fun and inspiring hands-on approach.  

Engineering Concepts

Children will learn basic design and engineering techniques using the engineering method and use them to discover solutions for exciting tasks and challenges.

Collect Stars and more!

All students receive Activity Worksheets and carefully planned  tasks, challenges and projects. Parents will be able to follow what their child  is learning and how they are progressing.  Children earn stars and special Certificates of Mastery along the way!

* Restrictions Apply.  Drop In Days are limited to Scratch Programming, Minecraft Education Edition only.
