Facilitated by experienced robotics students and led by parent volunteers, Holiday and After School Robotics are a great introduction for children aged 5-9 to our robotics programs.
After School Robotics
Embers Robotics run an after school robotics program on Tuesdays from 4pm-5pm each week at our workshop at Wollongong TAFE and also a program at Thirroul Public School on Thursday 3.45-5.30pm. There is also an EV3 Mindstorms Project Bucephelus run Roboclub that runs on Tuesday & Thursday at the same locations, aimed at older, more experienced kids.
Both Embers run programs are open to all students aged 5-9. The TAFE held classes cost $150 for a 10 lesson term or $15/lesson. Thirroul classes cost $27 per lesson. All lessons utilise the Lego Education WeDo 2.0 kits and prepare students for the more advanced Lego Mindstorms systems.
We have also just taken delivery of some Spike Prime kits and are now exploring Scratch programming which our students are enjoying.
Note: For Elonera Montessori School students the “walking wedo bus” is available for anyone who wishes to have their child collected from EMS OOSH and taken over to the TAFE for the class.
If you would like details about how to enrol, or how to catch the “bus” please contact us. Classes are limited in size due to COVID restrictions.
Sadly due to COVID-19 we currently have no holiday robotics programs scheduled.
We will however be facilitating a Wedo 2.0 robotics holiday program as part of the UOW Little Learning Labs on 13-14th January 2021. Download the brochure for details.
