For children 8-9 years old with some experience in robotics and coding. This course is great for expanding their programming skills with LEGO Spike Prime, Scratch 3.0 and the latest in Scratch Link technology to interact with LEGO robotics with an alternative coding system.
Scratch introduces complex coding concepts not available in previous LEGO software, such as nested loops and functions, multiple variables and multimedia features like sound and graphics editing.
Scratch is being adopted by LEGO Education's robotics products including WeDo 2.0, Spike Prime and EV3 as an alternative coding solution.
This course also includes the LEGO Spike Prime hardware and curriculum to prepare students for more advanced robotics.
This coding-focused course gives students a variety of activities more challenging than WeDo 2.0, in a less intensive engineering environment than EV3 Robotics.
Benefits of the course include:
Investigating, modelling, and designing solutions
Engaging students in science by making it real and relevant
Programming and engineering skills
Fun and engaging coding activities.
Translate between alternate coding languages Scratch, WeDo, and EV3.
