Robots used may include Edisons, Ozobots, and/or Sphero
Great robotics experience for all students. Students work with a variety of robots as their skills increase. They will scan barcode programs with the Edisons, using light sensors to follow lines, detect & avoid obstacles, or play bumper cars! Learn how to command with colors, to make a robot speed up, spin, start or stop, and follow specific colors using the Ozobots.
Learning is extended with all robots by using computers to begin building their own custom programs using block codes. Coding is more visually designed to enable beginning readers to also start programming their robot to perform their own unique plans. This is an excellent robotics course for the beginner, to learn how robots react, and how to control them with autonomous commands.
Course may include Edisons, Ozobots, Sphero robots, depending on skills progression

Join us as we code and program robots of all kinds. In our robotics classes, students will learn to code and program in different languages and apply them to different robots. Programming for the beginning levels begins with block style programming, moving into more complex customized program blocks and routines. Advanced level robotics work in line-coding real-world languages to instruct and control the robots. Each class series has exciting challenges and mini-competitions, to push our learning to applied problem-solving.
Robots may include any of the following, depending on ages and skill levels: Mindstorms EV3, Edisons, Sphero/Ollie, or Ozobots. We are continually exploring and adding new robots to our lineup. If students have a favorite robot of their own, they can contact us to see if we will be able to control it with our installed software and curriculum and bring their own bot to class to extend their learning.
Our Director and instructors have many years of experience in coaching competitive robotics teams and have continual knowledge about new robots, programming languages, and relevant additions to every robot class.
