Robotics

Robotics encompasses the design, construction, operation and use of robots, as well as, computer systems for their control, sensory feedback and information processing. Our courses cover all aspects of robotics: from theory, to building out designs, to programming and controlling robots.

Students join us on weekday evenings and Saturdays to learn STEM through discovery and play. Continuity through the year enables our little engineers to make steady progress through our curriculum.

Due to COVID, we have changed our schedule and delivery method for regular classes. Check out our operating protocol.

Virtual Classes

Coding, widely known as programming, involves writing commands that allows systems to perform meaningful tasks. Our coding classes focus on the most popular programing languages in the industry.

Students join us on weekday evenings and Saturdays to learn STEM through discovery and play. Continuity through the year enables our little engineers to make steady progress through our curriculum.

Key Benefits of Coding

Learning how to code at a young age helps students learn and develop:

  • Problem-solving skills
  • Creativity
  • Persistence
  • Logical and critical thinking
  • Exciting career choices

Additional information will be emailed to you after registration. You will require a laptop.
