In this increasingly digital world, it’s become important for kids to have, at the very least, a basic understanding of electronics, programming, and coding. At RoboThink, they have made it their mission to provide kids with quality STEM education focused on these 21st-century skills.
While once only available in the classroom, young tinkerers, engineers, and builders can now access these first-rate learning programs online. RoboThink’s online programs, led by a teacher in live time, are designed to be hands-on, engaging, and interactive. There’s even a ‘hand raising’ feature. Each course consists of 4 sessions, each session being 1.5 hours, and the best part is, all you need is a computer and internet, no need to download or buy anything extra. They are currently offering 4 different programs; intro to coding, introduction and intermediate video game design, and intro to Python, with more coming soon!
Introduction To Coding: This course puts the ‘fun’ in fundamentals as students get to create programs and then customize them with backgrounds, sound effects, and animations. This is a good one for kiddos who have little to no experience with coding.
Video Game Design: Students in these programs will have the opportunity to create their own interactive games as well as re-create classic games such as Flappy Bird. Introduction and Intermediate courses are available.
Introduction To Python: In this course, students will learn the popular coding language, Python, through creating simple programs that can respond to a mouse or keyboard input.
Ready, set, CODE!
RoboThink has created high-quality, online learning that is as fun and interactive as it is educational. Not only will students learn about coding and robotics but they will also be taught how to problem solve and think critically.
Really any child age 7 and up, but especially for kids that have an interest in electronics, entrepreneurship, or engineering.
RoboThink has also developed educational toys, similar to legos, that kids can assemble and then code, making them operational. These proprietary toys can be found here.
