ROBOTICS FOR KIDS

ROBOTIC FOR KIDS

At SCRATCHPAD, we believe that every child should have the opportunity to learn how to code and build robots. That’s why we offer a range of after-school robotics programmes designed specifically for kids.

Our robotics for kids programmes are suitable for children aged 7 and above and are perfect for beginners who are interested in learning about coding and robotics. Our programmes are designed to be fun, engaging and educational, and our experienced tutors work with small groups of children to ensure that everyone gets the support they need.

Our after-school robotics programmes cover a range of topics, including coding fundamentals, electronics, robotics and more. Children will learn how to build robots, programme them to perform specific tasks and develop their problem-solving skills along the way.

Our programmes are designed to be flexible, and we offer a range of options to suit your child’s needs. Whether your child is a complete beginner or has some coding experience, our programmes are designed to cater to all skill levels.

At SCRATCHPAD, we believe that learning should be fun, and our after-school robotics programmes are the perfect way for kids to explore the world of coding and robotics in a supportive and engaging environment.

Sign up for our after-school robotics programmes today and give your child the gift of creativity and learning.

SELF BALANCING ROBOT

Create a robot from scratch. 3D Print the chassis, put the components together and programme the robot so it can balance itself on just two wheels. Up for the challenge?

DURATION AND WHEN TO START

Each session lasts an hour and the course is taught one day a week. The content of each session builds on the previous one, and allows for students to practice various concepts at home.

Students can enrol at any time and based on their skill level we provide a number of session timings to choose from. We are open 7 days a week so there is always a session time that will work for you.
