Advanced Lego® Robotics with Scratch Programming

Kids 8 to 9 years old take this Robotics course to learn programming and Robotics techniques while building robots with Lego® expansion set.This curriculum expands previous programming knowledge gained through working with earlier courses such as WIZARD1 (Lego® Education WeDo) or WizPro-1. Students work as young Engineers on projects . They build and program working models and apply Scratch programming advanced concepts to create new models (robots) and programs. They learn to create advanced robots using Lego® Wedo core and expansion kits as well as Lego® WeDo 2.0 and Lego® Mindstorms EV3 kits with sensors, gears and wheels in multiple ways. The course engages kids in complex programming and computations coupled with creativity. The program leads to advanced STEM(Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) course Wizard-2.

What Kids Do and Learn

1. Scratch Programming with Lego® kits: Scratch is the best way to introduce Computer Programming to young Students. In this course kids learn:
- How to create more advanced programs
- How to write lines of code in Scratch
- Use powerful robotics components such as gears and sensors
- Use Lego® Mindstorms for creating powerful robots.
More specifically, students benefit through the following:
• Focus on Science, Mathematics, Technology, Engineering and Programming Skills
• Expand previous knowledge gained through Wizard-1 or Wiz-Pro1 course (based on LEGO® Education and Scratch).
• Work as young engineers on programming projects
• Create robots programmed with programs written in Scratch and Lego® Mindstorms
