Robotics and Programming
Activities & Programs That Are Educational & Fun!
With a growing economy that has a higher demand for STEM fields, it’s important that the next generation learns how they can make a difference in their world. That’s why Engineering For Kids offers a variety of classes and workshops that kids of all ages can enjoy. Robotics camps and classes give students the opportunity to dive deep into the world of robotics and explore how computer programming and robot design can solve problems big and small!
This course strengthens children’s understanding of the eight science and engineering practices. Which is done by asking questions, solving problems, modeling, prototyping, investigating, analyzing and interpreting data.
The Benefits of Robotics
Not only do our robotics programs help to establish science, technology, engineering, and math concepts, they also work to build on students’ team-building skills as they work to complete fun challenges. These collaborative skills are essential for student success, no matter what subject they choose to pursue in the future.
Many other advantages include:
- Improved creative thinking skills
- Improved social skills
- Improved problem-solving skills
- Improved computer programming skills
Junior Robotics Engineering
Whether you have a son who’s in preschool or a daughter that’s going on six years old, Engineering For Kids offer robotics classes that children as young as pre-kindergartners can enjoy. Our junior robotics engineering classes use educational kits like Arduino, LEGO® WeDo™ Robots to create a perfect mixture of fun and imagination that can help expand your young child’s creative mind. We introduce students to robot design and computer programming using basic machine principles to create robots capable of performing simple tasks.
Apprentice & Masters Robotics Engineering
Engineering For Kids is proud to offer a wide range of unique, educational, and stimulating robotics programs for young engineers ranging from 3rd grade to 8th grade. Putting the Engineering Design Process to work, students work in teams to plan, build, test, and modify their own robotic creations! We use LEGO® EV3 or NXT, VEX IQ, and other educational kits that mirror programming language used by engineers and scientists to help creative minds put mathematical concepts to the test as they develop a better knowledge of robotics, computer programming, and teamwork.
