“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.

RoboCODE WORKSHOP - TINY ONES (4yrs to Grade R)
In the Robocode for Tiny Ones Workshop by BUSYBOTS, we run robotics classes for young children aged 4 to 7. The children program the KIBO robots using wooden instruction blocks and a built in scanner. No screen time is involved!

The children learn the basics of coding while getting their robot to move around the room, respond to light and sound, dance, playback sounds, throw a ball and more - no prior knowledge is required.

Major benefits include development of computer science and engineering skills through maths, literacy, physical movement and art!


DETAILS

  • Length: 1 Day / 45 minutes per lesson
  • Cost: R120 per lesson per child
  • Recommend not more than 2 lessons per child on 1 day
  • You can do Lesson 1 and Lesson 2 on separate days!

RoboCODE WORKSHOP - LITTLE ONES (Grade 1-3)

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!

RoboCODE WORKSHOPS - JUNIORS (Grade 4-6/7)

In the Robocode for Juniors Workshop we will introduce participants to the exciting world of code over the course of two days. The workshop is problem-based, guiding participants to make their own discoveries as they solve up to 50 different problems with their robots.

All coding is done in an easy to use, drag-and-drop interface making this a perfect course for those with no coding experience. However, for those with a more technical bend, we have some special "tough cookie" problems to test their metal!

RoboCODE WORKSHOP - TEENS (Grade 7-10)

The workshop is problem-based, guiding participants to make their own discoveries as they solve up to 50 different problems with their robots. All concepts are explained simply, in a well-structured, step-by-step manner making this workshop perfect for those with no coding experience.

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!

  • Length: 7,5 hours per module
  • Cost: R750 (Single child) or R700 (Two or more children)

3D Design WORKSHOP - JUNIORS (Grade 4-7)

We are equipping the youth to become the innovators of tomorrow with CRITINK.

During the workshop students are introduced to the functional concept of 3D printing as a prototyping and manufacturing medium. They will create a key ring and spinner toy which they can take home! 

3D printing fosters an intricate balance between input, output, efficiency and our impact and is spontaneously drawn towards developing critical thinking and seeking innovative solutions by breaking complex designs up into simple shapes of which their final design comprises.

These paramount skills for the Fourth Industrial Revolution! 


DETAILS

  • Length: 2 days / 3 hours per day
  • Cost: R700 per child
  • No Experience needed

DATES & TIMES

  • Friday, 6 December & Monday, 9 December
  • 9:00-12:00 each day
