Robotics and Programming Course


Online, Instructor Led - Level 1


Spring 2021 - Weekly Tuesday Class, Feb 09 - Apr 20, 11:00pm - 12:30pm


Grades 6 & up


In the Level 1 Robotics & Programming Course we build robots and use the computer programming language Scratch to "train" the robot to perform specific tasks (like chase your cat or dog) and complete challenges. We learn about programming logic, loops, conditional statements and more. We work with both visual programming & command line code. We learn how to troubleshoot & upload the programs to our computerized robots. Students keep their robots and have the skill and code to continue to work on it beyond class. 


You will go on a journey from:Mechanical Enginnering > Computer Science & Programming > Product/Output


Anybody can join this class. No prior experience needed.

Recommended Ages


This course is generally recommended for students grades 5 and higher. However, we have students in the 4th grade that have taken the course, as well as, many high school students. Younger children typically move at a more casual pace and don't do the harder lessons or challenges. High school students generally move quicker and go deeper into the provided lessons and challenges.
