“I know how robots think!”

Learning to think like a programmer is one of the most important skills a child growing up in today's world can acquire. By learning to code with robots, EDRO Robocode workshops make this experience fun, effective and hands on.

In the Robocode for Little Ones Workshop, we will introduce children to the exciting world of code over the course of a single jam-packed morning or afternoon. The workshop is problem-based, guiding participants to make their own discoveries as they solve up to 24 different problems with their robots. They also work in teams, as collaboration is an important future skill too!

All coding is done, first by arranging magnetic code tiles on a whiteboard and then, by loading our code onto the robots via a remote control. This unique approach allows children to start tackling problems like a real computer scientist without touching a computer!

However, as we are doing all our coding in a 'text-based', 'command-line' level language called C, there will be ample scope to push the boundaries and tackle some very tough challenges!
