Our Robotics for Kids programs in Alberta are an excellent way to ensure your elementary or middle-school aged son or daughter stays inspired, motivated and engaged outside of school. If you have a budding programmer or engineer who loves to play with technology, he or she will feel right at home using hands-on, kid-friendly software to build and animate cool LEGO® robots. New to robotics? That’s ok! No prior knowledge is needed, and our teachers can modify lessons to suit your child’s ability. All your child needs to come equipped with is a little creativity and imagination!
Build In-Demand STEM Skills!
With STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers growing so quickly, there’s no better time to equip your child with crucial 21st century skills. And our Robotics for Kids programs in Alberta deliver just that: your child will master vital competencies like computer programming and problem solving as he or she learns how to build, analyze and troubleshoot LEGO® robots with friends. There’s no cooler way to get an educational edge!▼
Collaboration, Innovation and Fun Unite
Each Robotics for Kids class in Alberta is small, comfortable and personal (maximum of 12 students per session) and offers a unique mix of collaborative and self-guided projects. This means your child will enjoy both personal attention and the camaraderie of working with like-minded students. Your child will work with a partner to build a new robot each week, using LEGO® bricks to construct their creations and computer programming software to bring the bots to life. At the end of each session, your child will complete a project summary worksheet in order to strengthen the STEM concepts learned in class — and to show you all the amazing things he or she accomplished!
Boost confidence! Our programs feature:
- Kid-friendly programming software that helps students build practical skills — and that makes their bots come alive!
- Fun STEM-focused projects that excite, engage and equip students with key 21st century skills
- Weekly communication with parents, which includes a session summary, pictures and a preview of next week’s project
- A personal, supportive educational environment where imagination, creativity and new friendships blossom!
