WORKSHOPS

W hat is it?
Theme based day called ‘Battle Bots’ delivered over a half or full day. This theme is an awesome way for learners aged 8 years old onwards to learn about Computing by getting hands-on and experimenting with algorithms. Learners will observe robot behaviour and work strategically to improve there algorithms to win the battle.

H ow does it work?
We can supply supplementary materials to build up to the day which answer the questions What is a robot?, How does it work?, What is a program? and How is a robot is built? On the day we show a working battle bot explain the parts then teach learners what and how an algorithm is by using RFID cards. One the day a worksheet will be completed and they can be used for follow up lessons to further embed the learning.

W hy do it?
The workshop is learner centred. They experience in real time how a robot works and experiment with the algorithm to change behaviour and try to win a battle. Battle bots is a great way to understand the basic concepts of autonomous robotics and algorithms. The day culminates in a Battle Tournament, that assures an electric atmosphere to bolster learning. Importantly, it covers all Key Stage 2, 3 & 4 outcomes.

How much does it cost?

W orkshops for a full day £450 and £300 for a half day. We can supply up to 5 addtional lesson plans to deepen learning. Why not contact us and have a chat.

Other Awesome Outcomes

W e have even more lesson plans that can help deepen learning by blending English, Maths, Science and other subjects under this workshop umbrella for a truly blended curriculum experience.

From 6 weeks onwards

W hat is it?
Theme based learning project called ‘Robo Sumo’ delivered over a half or full term. Sumo is an awesome way for learners aged 8 years old on-wards to learn about Computing by getting hands on. Learners will design, build, program and test autonomous robots in 8 tasks.

H ow does it work?
We teach teams to work innovatively in an atmosphere of collaboration and excellence. The digital text book guides learners though everyday concepts that we translate in to programmable solutions. We rapidly jump from motor control to sensor input and then combining them to create an autonomous sumo-bot. Each team progresses at their pace, while documenting their learning journey. Every task culminates in evidence being uploaded to the Adaptive platform producing learning metrics.

W hy do it?
This course is learner centred and asks them to become independent solution seekers. Robo-Sumo is the best way to understand the basic concepts of autonomous robotics. The course culminates in a Sumo Tournament, that assures an electric atmosphere to bolster learning. Importantly, it covers all Key Stage 2, 3 & 4 outcomes.

How much does it cost?

P rojects or PPA cover from £50 to £75 per hour but rates depend upon school needs. What are those needs why not contact us and have a chat.

Here comes the fun

EVENTS TOURNAMENTS

EVENTS

W e can bring the bring to a birthday party or festival. We can work wonders with your fêtes. Occupy kids at a restaurant while the parents enjoy an extra drink. Nick out a niche in a meeting. Have your company logo embossed with Lego. Weddings where place setting are custom made from Lego unique to your guests.


Birthday Parties or Special Occasions
Shopping Centres or Festivals
Corporate Logos or Bespoke Ornamentation

TOURNAMENTS

O nline communities have their place but there’s nothing better than being face to face in the friendly spirit of competition. Tournaments are the best way to demonstrate learning, share ideas and become inspired. Roboticians of all levels gather together as a community of learners.
