Event description

Description

In this 1-week holiday workshop (individual days can also be booked), the children will learn about robotics, coding and animation through use of various robots and media to explore their creativity while learning key programming and engineering concepts in a fun learning environment.

The workshops run from 10am till 3pm, with the option of wrap around child car available.

The children get a really good flavour of all the different types of robots out there and various kinds of programming languages.



Day 1: Lego Robotics and Coding

Day 2: Artificial Intelligence and Coding with Cozmo

Day 3: Robotics and Coding with Ozobot and Sphero

Day 4: Animation and film making

Day 5: Minecraft Education




Monday, August 13: Day 1 – Lego Robotics and Engineering

Children use the Lego WeDo 2.0 and Lego Mindstorms EV3 to design robots to solve real world problems. They learn to code their robots in interactive challenges. In addition to the basics of robotics, children learn key engineering principles such as force and motion, gear ratios and aerodynamics.



Tuesday, August 14: Day 2 – Artificial Intelligence and Coding with Cozmo

Artificial intelligence is the future and it is set to cause massive industrial disruption. In this course, children are introduced to the concept of AI and machine learning through the fun and engaging medium of the Cozmo robot. Cozmo is able to recognize people and places, and over time it develops its own unique personality. Children learn to control the Cozmo robot with intelligent programming code and create their own games and solve challenges such as solving inner city pollution and congestion.



Wednesday, August 15: Day 3 –

Robotics and Coding with Ozobot and Sphero

In this course, children will be using robots (Ozobot and Sphero) to learn the concepts of coding in a fun, immersive and engaging way.

With CodeKids, the children progress through all the features of the Ozobot from colour-coding to programming using Blockly through the course of the day.

Sphero Edu will be used to programme the Sphero. The children will be learning with lots of hands on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) activities through the sessions.





Thursday, August 16: Day 4 – Creative storytelling and stop motion animation

In this course, children learn to create their own stories through Wallace & Grommitt type clay figures and Lego city models. They will learn to create story boards before shooting their own movie complete with audio and special effects animations. The children will be encouraged to reuse the learnings from the previous days as part of their movie projects.




Friday, August 17: Day 5 –

Minecraft Education

Dive into the educational benefits of Minecraft by creating and exploring this blocky world. Aspiring game designers learn problem-solving, level design, and more, building unique maps and crafting resource packs. Adding command blocks and redstone takes learning to the next level in a course designed to get students excited about game design through their favorite lens—Minecraft.






All courses are led by qualified Engineers, Physicists, Mathematicians, and Computer Scientists. The animation course is taught by Bunny Schendler, who is an animator and filmmaker whose work includes the BAFTA nominated short animated film The World of Interiors, made for Channel Four.

The course will be held at:

The Old Auditorium
Knole Academy
Bradbourne Vale Road,
Sevenoaks,
Kent,
TN13 3LE

All children between the ages of 6 and 12 are welcome to register.

Snacks and drinks will be provided but the children are asked to bring a nut-free packed lunch. No prior coding experience necessary.
