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

Learning computer programing is one of the most important skills a child growing up in today's world can acquire. Sadly, many children see coding & programming as dull and theoretical when limited to computer-only exercises. Fortunately, by learning to code with robots, EDRO RoboCode Academy Classes make this experience fun, effective and hands on.

In a Robocode Academy, we cover the fundamental pillars of coding over the course of 4 terms. In each term, a new module is offered, focusing on a new programming concept. Every lesson is problem-centred, guiding participants to make their own discoveries as they progress through 5 to 15 different problems. We believe in a team-orientated approach, so learners will work together in small teams to encourage collaboration at an early age - another surprising skill needed in the future!

For LITTLE ONES (Grade 1-3)

The Little Ones are introduced to the exciting world of coding through a game-like approach.

All coding is “written” first by arranging magnetic code tiles on a whiteboard. Code is then uploaded to their robots via a remote control and executed on a physical course mat to evaluate if the desired goal was reached

For JUNIORS (Grade 4-7)

All code is created using an easy-to-use, drag and drop interface. This allows children with no prior experience to easily engage with EDRO's problems right from the very first lesson.

Code created in this interface is then uploaded onto our robots which then bring the code to life right in front of our eyes as they move, draw, play sounds, avoid obstacles and solve other fascinating problems.
