Event description

Description

Combining coding, robotics and creativity, this Build-A-Robocar Bootcamp is designed to expose your child to creating with technology.

The robocar that your child will build uses coding logic to control music buzzer, programmable ambient rainbow lights and motors to dance. The programming concepts learned can be applied to make mood lights for the bedroom, a mini delivery vehicle for simple errands within your home or play your favourite tunes. Conquering this bootcamp will set your child on the path to building bigger and better autonomous vehicles!

Your child will learn:

Fundamentals of Coding & Robotics

  • Module 1: Introduction to micro:bit & Makecode Platform

  • Module 2: Working with micro:bit LED matrix

  • Module 3: Programming Concepts & Constructs

  • Module 4: Making Music with the Buzzer

  • Module 5: Using Addressable & Non-Addressable LEDs

  • Module 6: Controlling Motors

Our aim is to help your child learn by doing and build 21st century life skills including creative confidence, self-directed learning and fundamentals of coding and robotics. And of course, your child brings home his/ her custom-built robocar to continue learning and iterating it to become an ever-more powerful machine, expanding their imagination. Join us for an unforgettable experience and hands-on fun.
