Facilitated by experienced robotics students and led by parent volunteers, Holiday and After School Robotics are a great introduction for children aged 5-9 to our robotics programs.
After School Robotics
Embers Robotics run an after school robotics program on Tuesdays from 4pm-5pm each week. This is similar to the current Roboclub that runs on Tuesday, but for younger or less experienced kids. Please note that students can be collected from OOSH for robotics. This will allow them to release some energy outside as well as have a small snack before the session.
This program is open to all students aged 5-9 and the cost is $150 for the term. Lessons will utilise the Lego Education WeDo 2.0 kits and prepare students for the more advanced Lego Mindstorms systems.
More experienced students may wish to enrol for Roboclub, also held on Tuesday afternoons after school, using the EV3 Lego robotics equipment.
Unfortunately we have not managed to secure a room to run our normal robotics class at the school on Tuesdays for Term 3, given this we have decided to run the class from our FRC workshop at the North Wollongong TAFE.
The class will run in the normal time slot of Tuesday afternoon 4-5pm. The “walking wedo bus” will be available for anyone who wishes to have their child collected from EMS OOSH and taken over to the TAFE for the class.
If you would like details about how to enrol, or how to catch the “bus” please contact us. The class is limited in size due to COVID restrictions.
Sadly due to COVID-19 we currently have no holiday robotics programs scheduled. This will be reassessed as the October school holidays approach.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
