If you have a budding engineer in the family why not try robotics?

In this beginner course students discover the fun of block-coding while training a cheerful metal mBot to learn complex tasks. We’ll start with building and customisation for robot football and then graduate to team-based challenges on the Make X competition arena. Soon your child will understand how smart sensors work on tasks such as color detection, obstacle maneuver and removal, and robot dancing! 

Tools: mBot/Make X Starter

Note that participation in MakeX is not required in order to join the camp and experience the thrill of designing a champion robot! Makeblock supports both mBlock, a drag-and-drop visual programming environment based on Scratch for beginners or C++ for kids ready for additional programming challenges. Our curriculum provides hands-on collaborative and competitive challenges where students build robots and learn about electronics, mechanical design, code development and algorithms.


Notes: Students taking the course for a second time will be exposed to new robotic design challenges.
