LEGO® Robotics  Wednesdays:  April 11, 18, 25, May 2, 9, 16, 23

Grades 2-4

LEGO® Robotics is our core class, where beginners learn to build and program  robots using LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo robotics and programming software.

Students follow step-by-step on-screen instructions to build their robots, and then build a suggested program to get their robots working. After that, those who are ready build more complicated programs involving motion or tilt sensors, or improvise to make their robots achieve certain tasks.

Adventures with Robots offers after-school LEGO® robotics and science classes for kids in Maryland, northern Virginia and Washington D.C.

Towards the end of the session, we encourage some of the more advanced students in this class to skip the group activity and instead take our challenge to use what they’ve learned so far to design their own programmable car that that can move without being touched. Even our biggest LEGO® robotics buffs find this extremely challenging, but we work with them to help them succeed.

Yes! We have girls in our classes and are working on ways to get more of them into our classes!!
