This course aims to provide a fun learning experience for students aged 5+ to explore robotics and computer science concepts around the Lego-compatible Edison robot.
The Edison robot is a powerful, car-shaped robot that engages kids for teaching them computer programming and model building in a hands-on way. Through the visual, block-based, drag-and-drop interface - EdBlocks, students will learn how to program Edison to perform cool functionalities and tricks. Edison is also a blank canvas model that students can use to build amazing creations and explore the world of Lego and model building. With each class, students will be exposed to new STEM concepts as well as learn about the different blocks and commands.
The course is designed to be suitable for students at the age of 5 years old. The flow for each lesson will be picture guided theory in the beginning, followed by an activity on building and/or programming Edison around the concepts taught.
We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.
Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.
First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.
What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
