Explore mBot & Block-based Coding

ChristmasCamp 2018 (Ages 9-11: Senior)

As magical as they seem, robots are designed by us humans. Grab a couple of hardware components and add a little program, and voila! Come to this camp if you want your kids to understand sensors, transistors, and basic software design to create whatever robot they want. Coupling mBot and MIT Scratch, we’ll learn why connection between parts matter for robots to work. Debugging will also be a great part of the camp, where we explore why certain things don’t work. Making a great robot not only entails understanding things working but also understanding why some designs fail.

Kids can expect to get their hand dirty with hardware and figuring out parts. We’ll build drivable robots, and get them to fight! 


Key Takeaways:

1. Getting kids to understand what it takes to make a smart robot.
2. Understand the connection between hardware and software.
3. Getting kids comfortable with hardware components and sensors.
4. Debugging: understanding what stuff doesn’t work and how to fix them.

What to bring:

1. Laptop (PC or Mac), Power Adapter
2. Tuition fee includes mBot (Retail price: HK$748)
