Yes! We have girls in our classes and are working on ways to get more of them into our classes!!
LEGO® Robotics is our core class, where beginners learn to build and program robots using LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo robotics and programming software.
Students follow step-by-step on-screen instructions to build their robots, and then build a suggested program to get their robots working. After that, those who are ready build more complicated programs involving motion or tilt sensors, or improvise to make their robots achieve certain tasks.
Towards the end of the session, we encourage some of the more advanced students in this class to skip the group activity and instead take our challenge to use what they’ve learned so far to design their own programmable car that that can move without being touched. Even our biggest LEGO® robotics buffs find this extremely challenging, but we work with them to help them succeed. If they like the challenge, we suggest our follow-on LEGO® robotics class, Robo Challenge!
The Great Adventure Lab, formerly known as Adventures with Robots. Same company. Same management. New name to fit our growing curriculum!
