Robotics Level 1 has been designed for children aged 7 to 10 years, to help them learn the basics of programming. The course is ideally suited for children who love to be creative and find their own solutions to problems. It takes advantage of LEGO robots to assist the learning process by letting the students have fun while learning core concepts of programming. Through demonstrations and exciting exercises they will experience the world of programming with exciting and tangible results.
Every student will be able to build their own LEGO robot and use it throughout the week to solve problems and challenges. They will be given the opportunity of using their own creativity to improve upon the robot’s design to better tackle these challenges, all the while learning more and more advanced concepts. Programs are made using LEGO's Mindstorms software, which enables users to visually compose programs without needing to worry about syntax and spellchecking.
The course itself starts off by going through the different sensors available to the robots, and how to use these in conjunction with the motors to produce amazing robots and programs. We cover concepts such as branching, or conditional execution, where their program will only perform certain tasks if one or more logical conditions are met, for example, when an obstacle being detected or a collision happens. Looping is another core concept, where students learn how to make their programs repeat tasks over and over, based on some specified logic.
The week is packed with fun and exciting challenges which test the limits of their robot - getting through mazes, navigating obstacles, battling other robots and much, much more! Think creatively and critically to solve the challenges will give maximum satisfaction.

Thank you to everyone at Funtech, especially William, for the fantastic week our son had with you this week. He couldn't wait to get to camp every day and had ideas and plans running around in his head in the evenings. We were so impressed by the programming he learnt and the confidence in tech th

my son had a fantastic time this week - I was not sure how he would take to the camp as in the past he has only attended sports camps but he was excited to go in every day and is already planning his next tech camp
