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.

Reading other reviews make me think we are attending a different camp. Our kids are not happy with the way the current Lego week is being managed. They complain of being left alone, poor quality of the pre-recorded video instructions, little learning as the result of no explanations, long boring bre
