At YouthCode robotics classes and camps, students learn basic computer science and robotics concepts while programming computers. All of our instructor-led robotics classes and camps use robots designed specifically for education. All classes and camps include instruction, unplugged activities and hands-on project time for students to apply their new knowledge and skills.
In this introductory robotics camp, students use Scratch to program Makeblock mBot robots. Students will have fun completing robot challenges and playing mBot soccer. [Prior Scratch experience or equivalent required; Age 10+]
As an introduction to robotics, students use Scratch and a Finch robot to learn basic concepts such as control, sensory feedback and information processing. [Prior Scratch experience or equivalent required; Age 10+]
There are currently no scheduled Finch classes or camps.
Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab and is available for free at scratch.mit.edu.
