ROBOTICS

Robotics classes, both educational and fun, give learners the opportunity to delve deep into the world of robotics and explore how computer programming and robot design can solve problems big and small. Our junior robotics engineering classes use the LEGO WeDO kits. These kits introduce our learners to robot design and computer programming using basic machine principles to create robots capable of performing simple tasks. During the past
year 331 learners have been introduced to Robotics at the Enlighten centre during two afternoons.

The club operates on 3 developmental levels:

  • “We do” is intended for children 6-9 years.
  • “Mindstorms” is intended for children 10-16 years old.
  • Expert level for learners who reach the exit level of the Legobased Robotics Club.

Our intention is to have a Robotics branch at each of the local schools.
Robotic Club meets every Monday and Friday from 14:00 until 16:00
