Lego Robotics Workshop, Level 1 & 2 – July 2019

Berytech Innovation Park Mar Roukoz – Mkalles
From July 10 till September 11, 2019
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm (Level 1)
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm (Level 2)

Workshop Details

This workshop is designed for kids between the age of 5 and 12 years old. In this workshop, students will use the LEGO Robotics Kit, which is a programmable robotics construction set that gives them the power to build, program and command their own LEGO robots.

At the end of each session, the student would have built a robot using LEGO Bricks and programmed it to perform various tasks. Every week there is a new activity/robot to build. This would help in understanding the workflow of robotics and technology, little ones can see how science comes to life.

The goal is to learn basic programming skills, conceptualize science from a practical point of view and acquire critical thinking.

 

About Level 2: For the kids who participated at this workshop before, a new, more challenging level is also available. Level 2 consists of the same sessions but they are delivered in a less-guided way. Not all the building steps are given to the student. First, kids are exposed to half of the steps and they have to get inspired from three images (three angles of the final robot) to complete the robot. After building and engineering the robots, the kids will code it with challenging tasks.

 

Trainer: NinjaCo – Course prepared by Lego Education
Limited Seats Available: 20 seats
Fee: $170.00 for all sessions or $20.00 per session (For any level, Excluding VAT)

Workshop duration:10 sessions, 1 hour each, from 5 pm to 6 pm for level 1, from 6 pm to 7 pm for level 2.
