RoboCode for Little Ones (Gr 1 - 3)

“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 101 workshops make this experience fun, effective and hands on.

In the Robocode 101 for Little Ones Workshop we will introduce children in Grades 1 to 3 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.

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 start tackling problems like a real computer scientist

This unique approach allows children start tackling problems like a real computer scientist without touching a computer!

The Robocode 102 for Little Ones Workshop will continue from the previous module and introduce concepts like functions & coding constraints with an increased focus on geometry and maths. The learners will have to guide the robot to draw their challenges, making this a very visually expressive workshop.

The workshop is team oriented and problem-based, guiding participants to make their own discoveries as they solve up to 24 different problems with their robots. 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 start tackling problems like a real computer scientist without touching a computer!

RoboCode for Juniors (Gr 4 - 6)

“See it move… Watch it go! Look, it’s drawing a spiral now... And I coded it to do that!”

RoboCode 101 for Juniors introduces children to the world of coding robots. This workshop is hands-on, practical and, most of all, fun! We will spend our time playing games, solving problems through the use of GUI coding, and learning some very important programming concepts along the way.

In the Robocode 101 for Juniors Workshop we will introduce participants to the exciting world of code over the course of two jam packed 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!

DETAILS for Module 1

  • Grade: 4 to 6 (Strict)
  • Days: 2 days / 4 hours per day
  • Times: 13:00 - 17:00 (Each day)
  • Cost: R790 (Single child) or R750 (Two or more children)

Learn more with Module 2

RoboCode 101 was an important step in learning the basics of coding. RoboCode - Module 2 builds on this solid base to take you to the next level fo your coding journey.

The focus of this RoboCode Module 2 is on exploring the concept of choice in code and robotics. How can digital systems make choices? What advanced behaviour can we programme when our robots can make choices? We will explore the concept of choice through problems involving the use of our robot's sensors. We will solve problems that require our robot to navigate mazes, follow torch-light and sense different colour surfaces.

The workshop is problem-based, guiding participants to make their own discoveries as they solve up to 30 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 with aside from RoboCode 101.

DETAILS for Module 2

  • Grade: 4 to 6 (Strict)
  • Days: 1 days / 6 hours
  • Times: 09:00 - 15:00
  • Cost: R600 per child
