Our Robotics Camp at Funside Balaton features a brand new program for our younger students (8-12 years) in 2019, based entirely on the LEGO Boost platform. During our 2-hour classes, participants will build and code a different LEGO robot from the Boost set each day, completing a total of 5 different projects throughout the week. Kids work in teams of 2 to 3 students, enhancing cooperation and team working skills, as they work together to solve problems and divide sub-tasks among each other with guidance from our teachers. The teams use tablets to program the robots through LEGO’s own visual coding application. The Boost platform is all about learning in a playful way, which is the cornerstone of our education philosophy at Funside. Our Robotics Camp is especially recommended to students interested in the world of technology but have never learned how to code before.
For older students (12 and up): check out our brand new Robotics: LEGO Mindstorms camp.
For our returning campers: we have developed this year’s curriculum in a way that it is equally ideal for those who took part in our previous, LEGO WeDo-based classes last year (or the year before), but is also recommended for beginners with no prior experience in robotics or programming.
