Robots are the next BIG thing. 65% of today's students will be employed in jobs that don't exist yet. Learn it Academy camps will help to prepare your children for the future in a fun, hands-on and engaging environment.
Using LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 (Junior Robotics Academy) and LEGO Education Mindstorms EV3 (Senior Robotics Academy) our Academy is the result of several years of experience in delivering engaging robotics workshops for children around Ireland. Developed in conjunction with Prof. Deirdre Butler from the DCU Institute of Education and held in the DCU LEGO Education Innovation Studio our Junior Robotics Academy will ignite your child's curiosity and love for STEM, Robotics and LEGO.
Throughout the academy, children will discover a range of building techniques based on the LEGO Technics system. Constructing simple mechanisms such as Gears, Pulleys & Leavers and combining them to create amazing machines. Over the course of a week, they will develop and adapt their building skills to design and build robots to solve a series of real-world challenges and missions.
Children will bring their creations to life and discover the power of coding. Using simple drag and drop interfaces that can create powerful and complex algorithms children will have the power to truly take control of their robots to automate a range of tasks.
Over the course of the Academy children will build robots to take on real world challenges. Creating physical and digital solutions, collaborating in teams to problem solve, developing computational thinking skills and much more children will be engaged in a truly fun and hands one learning experience.
So much more than a camp. Led by LEGO Education Certified Trainers there is no other LEGO Education themed camp that can compare. With smaller camp sizes children will get more one on one time with the instructors. Each child attending will receive a welcome pack and graduation pack. With a personalised review of their week at the academy.
Our Academy takes place in the fantastic DCU LEGO Education Innovation Studio. The studio was designed from the ground up as a multifunctional modern learning space and equiped with the latest LEGO Education resources and technology.
The Academy runs weekly during the month of August. From 10am - 2.30pm daily. A hot lunch is included daily for each child.
