All I have to say is that my son was soooo excited when he came home from this class! It was all he talked about that night. … Rock View ES parent, Kensington, Md.

Yes! This is what students are supposed to look like when they’re learning logic, science and engineering

Grades 2-4. Two great classes, Lego Robotics A and Lego Robotics B. Students may take either or both in any order, but should not repeat either one.Scroll down for more photos and reviews. 

Yes! We have girls in our classes and are working on ways to get more of them into our classes!!

Lego Robotics is our core class, where beginners learn to build and program robots using Lego Education’s award-winning WeDo™  robotics and programming software.

Students follow step-by-step on-screen instructions to build their robots, and then write suggested programs to get their robots working. After that, those who are ready write more complicated programs involving motion or tilt sensors.

That’s just the start! Once we’ve built and programmed our bots, we start experimenting with them. If we want our robot to move in a different direction, or make a sound, or make a different motion, how do we re-program them or re-engineer them to do that?

Tired of having no clue what your kids do in all those clubs? We’re different. A day or two after every class, your instructor will email a note explaining what the class learned in the previous session and what’s next. Sometimes we even include photos and videos!

 

For complete information for parents whose students are new to robotics, see our beginning robotics FAQ.
