This program gives young kids their start to building, programming and coding robots through playful, developmentally appropriate activities. Kids in SK-Grade 2 will learn basic colour coding skills in order to make a small robot move and dance, create electric circuits with copper paper, design motorized cars & helicopters, and even build some Lego robotics!

*Children need to bring a nut-free lunch, a labeled water bottle, and a nut-free snack. 1 snack will be provided each day.

Program 2: $175 per child going into Grade 3 to Grade 6 (as of September 2020)

Combining the versatility of the LEGO building system with robotic control units and motors; kids in Grade 3-6 will learn how to create fun automated robots.

  • Day 1: Wind Seeker Robot: replicating the world-famous wind seeker ride from Canada’s Wonderland.
  • Day 2: Gears: kids will learn gear ratios and the transfer between rotational speed & torque to create an amusement park ride of their own.
  • Day 3: Ice Bucket Challenge: Based on the idea of the ALS Ice Bucket challenge, students will get to create their own robot structure that completes a drop.
  • Day 4: Animal Trap: using a touch sensor to activate a motor, students will create an animal trap
