Our Robotics for Kids programs in Illinois are all about keeping elementary and middle school-aged children feeling inspired, motivated and engaged after school and beyond. If your son or daughter loves to play with technology, he or she will have an amazing time navigating kid-friendly software to construct and animate an assortment of cool LEGO® robots. Newbie? No problem! No prior experience is needed, and our instructors are happy to modify to meet your child’s ability. All your son or daughter needs to pack is a little bit of imagination and creativity!
Learn Valuable STEM Skills!
STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers are on the rise, which means now is a great time to equip your son or daughter with important 21st century competencies. And that’s exactly what our Robotics for Kids courses in Illinois provide: your child will develop skills in key areas including computer programming and problem solving as he or she learns how to construct and animate a number of LEGO® robots with a partner. It’s a fun way to get an educational boost!▼
Collaboration, Innovation and Fun Unite
With a maximum of 12 students per session, our Robotics for Kids programs in Illinois provide an effective mix of collaborative projects and personal learning in a comfortable, small group environment. This means your son or daughter will benefit from personal attention while at the same time fostering new friendships with like-minded peers. Your son or daughter will work with a friend to build a new and exciting robot each session, using LEGO® bricks and interactive programming software to make the bots come alive. 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!
Boost confidence! Our programs feature:
- Hands-on software that helps kids learn fundamental programming skills — and that animates the unique robots they built!
- A STEM curriculum that’s fun, interactive and equips students with essential 21st century abilities
- Ongoing communication with parents, which features a session recap, photos and a preview of what’s in store the following week
- A collaborative, supportive setting where imagination and creativity grow — and where new friendships thrive!
