Our Robotics for Kids programs in Alaska 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 engineer who loves to tinker with technology, he or she will have a blast using interactive, kid-friendly software to build cool LEGO® robots. First timer? Not a problem. No experience is necessary, and our teachers are happy to adjust to your child’s ability. All your son or daughter needs to pack is a little bit of imagination and creativity!
Learn Valuable STEM Skills!
With STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers continuing to grow, there’s no time like the present to help your child develop vital 21st century skills. And that’s precisely what our Robotics for Kids programs are designed to do: your son or daughter will build important competencies in areas like computer programming and problem solving while learning how to build and tinker with a variety of LEGO® robots. It’s a super cool way to gain an educational edge!▼
Collaboration, Innovation and Fun Unite
With only up to 12 students per class, our Robotics for Kids courses in Alaska deliver a successful combination of collaborative and self-guided learning in an intimate, personal setting. This means your child will receive personal attention while also developing new friendships with other aspiring programmers or engineers. Using cool LEGO® bricks and fun software, your child will team up with a partner to construct and animate a different robot every week. After each class, your child will work on an activity summary worksheet to help reinforce the STEM skills learned in class — and to share with you all the cool and exciting things he or she did!
Our hands-on courses include:
- Intuitive, kid-friendly software that helps students build valuable programming skills — and that animates their robotic creations!
- STEM-related activities that are fun, engaging and equip your child with vital 21st century competencies
- Ongoing communication with parents, including emailing you after each session with pictures, highlights and a preview of what’s coming next
- A supportive learning environment where imagination is encouraged, creativity is fostered and new friendships flourish!
