Welcome to the world of LEGO Robotics with our Space Explorers and Animal Adventures workshops, designed for kids aged 7-12. These fun and interactive workshops promote creativity, problem-solving, and teamwork, starting with a brief ice-breaker activity to encourage collaboration.
In the Space Explorers workshop, children build and program Mars Rovers using LEGO SPIKE Prime sets. In the Animal Adventures workshop, young engineers create animal-inspired robots to mimic unique movements. Both workshops include an introduction to LEGO SPIKE Prime, hands-on building, programming guidance, and a group challenge to apply newfound skills.
Each workshop concludes with a showcase of creations and reflection on the learning experience. These workshops aim to spark imagination, develop technical skills, and foster a love for robotics and exploration, providing an enriching experience for young learners.
Challenge A: Space Explorers
- Introduce LEGO SPIKE Prime & space exploration
- Build: Mars Rover (wheeled robot for rough terrain)
- Program: Basic commands & movements
- Group activity: Navigate simulated Mars surface
- Wrap-up: Showcase Mars Rovers
Challenge B: Animal Adventures
- Introduce LEGO SPIKE Prime & animal-inspired robotics
- Build: Choose animal & create movement-inspired robot
- Program: Tailored commands & movements
- Group activity: Animal Robot Race (obstacle course)
- Wrap-up: Showcase animal robots
In our workshops, students are provided with essential learning tools to ensure a smooth and engaging experience. Each participant receives a laptop, pre-loaded with the necessary software for programming their LEGO robots. The laptops allow students to easily create, test, and modify their code throughout the workshop.
Additionally, students are given LEGO SPIKE Prime sets (2 students to share 1 set), which include an assortment of LEGO bricks, motors, sensors, and the SPIKE Prime hub. These sets enable students to build a wide range of robots, from Mars Rovers in the Space Explorers workshop to animal-inspired creations in the Animal Adventures workshop. The versatile SPIKE Prime sets empower young learners to bring their imaginative designs to life and explore the world of robotics in a fun, hands-on way.
1. Computhink Student Portal
All Computhink Students enjoy the use of the Computhink Student Portal. The Student Portal is similar to the SLS use by MOE schools and is Computhink’s proprietary system for our student’s learning needs, where students will log in every day, and find notes, exercises, short videos, and video recordings explaining concepts for the day.
2. Student Laptops Provided
Every student will have 1 laptop provided for use. Students will use the laptops to program the robot using Lego Spike App.
3. Lego Spike Prime
Lego Spike Prime sets are provided for students during the workshop. The sets are designed to be shared by 2 students to encourage collaboration and team work. The sets include an assortment of LEGO bricks, motors, sensors and the Spike Prime Hub.
4. Challenges and Assessments
Students will be given close guidance for their coding challenges for their workshops to test their understanding. Our lessons are enquiry based to help your child learn better.
Students will be tested on their understanding via challenges to ensure they are following well.
