EDRO Robotics Academies provide the EDRO Experience to children and teenagers through weekly classes held at schools, home-schools and Saturday classes. Academy classes teach the fundamentals of computer coding through the interactive medium of robotics.
EDRO academies cater for participants aged 9 to 16. Newcomers are inducted into the language of computer code by solving a variety of problems with their robots. Every EDRO problem involves the discovery of a key concept, allowing participants to truly make their own discoveries while still being guided through a structured curriculum.
Academy classes run for 75, 90 or 120 minutes. Periods of problem solving form the largest part of every class, while games, theory sessions and discussion make up the balance. Every class is run by a member of EDRO’s facilitator team; a group of passionate, trained individuals who bring their unique expertise into every EDRO lesson.
