Building Robot

This class is available in-person, hybrid (in-person sometimes), or fully remote. In-person students will be subject to our COVID procedures.

Scratch Robotics

This course is designed to introduce students in elementary school to coding - with a twist! Students will complete projects as they learn the fundamentals of computer programming, then will apply those learnings to developing programs for robots they will be constructing. This course will focus on building skills with an emphasis on independence. The students will be able to construct a complete Scratch program for a robot of their choice by the end of this course.

Requirements:

  • A device where students will be able to use the Scratch program, such as a Windows, Apple, or Chromebook PC 

  • Remote or hybrid students must be able to simultaneously video conference during the class 

Cost: $750 + materials ($100)

Per 5-week session.

Materials include the robotics kit and related components. If registering for both sessions, total materials cost is still $100.
