Real-world engineering comes alive at this fun Lego camp for kids!

Your child will build and customise their Lego robot (one per child). After learning about the different sensors and actuators (motors), your child will learn to code at a high level, implementing concepts such as pathfinding algorithms and gyroscopic navigation! The Lego summer camp week is packed full of fun and exciting challenges which will test the limits of their robot as they engineer and program their way through tasks such as Maze Mapper, Cube Control and the epic Robot Wars!

About this camp

An in-depth introduction to Robotics, from hands-on construction to algorithms and navigation. LEGO Robotics Senior will take your child on a theoretical and practical journey through engineering, creativity, problem solving, visual coding and lots more!

Using the latest LEGO technology, and our progressive curriculum, your child will be immersed in a series of demonstrations, exercises, and tasks. After a 360° orientation of the different sensors and motors available, your child will construct and customise their LEGO robot.

Progressing from construction into the world of coding using LEGO’s Mindstorms visual scripting tool your child will learn coding constructs such as branching and looping. Using these constructs, they will learn to implement advanced AI coding concepts.

At 4pm on Friday family and friends are invited to the Lego summer camp ‘Senior Grand Finale’ - where your child will prepare, code and fine tune their bot to participate and compete in three events that test speed, intelligence and robustness.

How academic are the courses?

We take pride in delivering courses that are both academic and most importantly, fun. No matter which class, your child will come away having learnt a lot, but not through ‘rote.’. We have top quality tutors who are great at engaging children and inspiring them. This is not about ‘playing games’ all day.
