Event description
One week. Five lessons every afternoon. Kids ages 8-12 learn how to design, build and code with LEGO Mindstorms robotics kits.

About this Event

A week-long, online course of daily afternoon lessons focused on introducing kids to designing, building and coding robots and tech prototypes. Kids are required to have their own LEGO Mindstorms kit and a computer, laptop or tablet on which the free LEGO Mindstorms software is downloaded.

During this Zoom-based, LEGO Mindstorms course taught online, kids ages 8-12 who have little to no previous experience in creating technology will be introduced to the basics of design, computer science, coding and robotics. The goal of this course is to give them a foundation on which they can become comfortable with innovation processes and begin inventing robots and tech prototypes.

Under the guidance of NewTechKids' teacher, kids will participate in class discussions about technology, its implications and ethics before building and coding physical prototypes. Over the course, kids will learn about important design and computer science concepts such as resources, requirements, design cycles, commands, loops, sequence, if-else logic, resources and requirements.

Exploring the theme "Tech Inventors to the Rescue", kids will create technology solutions for different industries, from farming to sports, construction, healthcare and security. They'll be expected to work independently before and after class. Before each class, we'll provide easy-to-follow instructions on how to build simple prototypes which are due before class. During class, our teacher will help them improve their designs and then code them to do something specific.

The class will be taught by a professionally-qualified teacher with specialized computer science training. A maximum of 12 kids can enrol in this course.
