Jr. Robotics – Grades 1-3
In this course students will build Bricks 4 Kidz® models and program them using WeDoTM software. WeDoTM bridges the physical world, represented by Bricks 4 Kidz® models, and the virtual world of computers and programming software, providing a hands-on, minds-on learning experience that actively involves young students in their own learning process.
WeDoTM is generally aimed at promoting children’s creative thinking, but also teamwork and problem-solving skills, skills which are essential in the 21st century workplace. Drag-and-drop icon-based software provides an intuitive and easy-to-use programming environment suitable for beginners and experienced users alike. WeDoTM was developed by National Instruments, a leading provider of engineering hardware and software.
The WeDoTM platform allows Bricks 4 Kidz® to offer a new but natural learning process that gives students the opportunity to direct their own learning. Students will be so engaged in the lessons, they won’t realize how much they are learning!
