For those kids aged 6-10 who haven’t been to CoderDojo Belfast previously we occasionally provide session on Beebots and Lego Mindstorms.
Unfortunately this is extremely popular. We can only accommodate a fixed number of new starts at any one time and tickets sell out fast!
Beebots is for those children currently in primary 2 and 3. In this 6 week programme, the Beebot robotic device is used with the children to introduce commands which are carried through into the Scratch programming environment and built on. The children learn to use the Scratch editor to draw their own sprite and to use the programming blocks to create a maze or game. This is an ideal starting point for the very young and provides a strong foundation for the Lego Mindstorms class.
Lego Mindstorms is for those aged 6-10. LEGO MINDSTORMS is a programmable robotics construction set that gives you the power to create and command your own LEGO robots.
