LEGO® WEDO 2.0
5, 6 & 7 years old
We provide FREE assessment!
If your child has prior WeDo robotics experience & is interested in continuing his/her robotics journey with us, we can arrange a free assessment to enable us to recommend a suitable level for him/her.
Coding is an integral part of robotics. When a child learns robotics, he/ she learns coding and many more concepts in the realm of STEM (science, technology, engineering & math).
Our LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 program is suitable for young children (5 to 7 years old) and who do not have prior robotics experience, to kickstart their robotics experiential learning. Its coding is by drag & drop of coding blocks, which is very easy for the children to understand and apply.
While STEM encompasses robotics, we take every opportunity to highlight the related inter-disciplinary STEM concepts – through challenges to the students, to enhance the lessons’ objectives. This method is proven to be effective in enabling the students to understand new concepts.
Each student will use a robotics kit set and a tablet during lesson to maximise his/her learning. Each class size is kept small for close interaction with our teacher(s).
5 years old
1 hour 30 min
At 5-years-old, a child’s gross and fine motor skills, the ability to process verbal & pictorial instructions and understanding concepts relating to STEM, are beginning to gain pace. Introducing robotics at this juncture with a hands-on experiential approach and at the right pace will accelerate these aspects of their development and ignite their interest in STEM.
We have designed our WeDo robotics Foundation program specially for 5-year-olds. The program consisting of 10 lessons of 1 hour and 30 minutes each.
The students will be introduced to robotics concepts with the emphasis on robot building (hardware), basic coding (software) and the interface between them to create purposeful outcomes. The lessons of this segment will also develop and strengthen the fine motor skill and cognitive skill that are important to this age group.
Another segment of the lessons emphasize on the basic applications of the 2 sensors with their respective coding functions to enable the robot to execute specific tasks.
The Foundation programs prepare the young students to construct robots with more connecting steps and intricate connections. They will also learn and apply advanced coding to enable the robots to execute more complex task(s) according to the sensors’ input, when they progress along.
6 & 7 years old
1 hour 30 min
Our Basic program consists of two lessons. Students build their first robot, gain an understanding of the basic key coding blocks’ functions and code for the robot to execute some movements. They will also learn the basic applications of the 2 sensors with their respective coding functions to enable the robot to execute specific tasks. Some purposeful-play in the form of mini challenges will be given to the students during the lessons for them to apply the concepts, making the learning fun and sense-making.
We structure the Basic program with two lessons is to encourage parents to let their children to have a fair amount of time to learn the basic of robotics. This enables the parents and the child to ascertain his/ her interest in robotics.
1 hour 30 min
After completing the WeDo basic program, the excitement and enthusiasm of learning continue for the students to discover more.
Robot building: The students will have many first-time hands-on exposures to apply simple machines concepts, compound gears, etc, for moving mechanisms. They will also use sensors to enable the robot to execute specific tasks. These learning experiences strengthen their knowledge on how things work.
Coding segment: The students will deepen their understanding on the application of the coding blocks, especially with the use of sensor’s input.
Extra-curricular Challenges: We have crafted the challenge in each lesson that requires the students to apply some inter-disciplinary concepts and be inventive in their solutions.
*WeDo Certificate will be presented upon completion of the program
Tougher Robots Program
1 hour 45 min
These 30 robots (40 robots for the 5 years old program) provide the students with advanced robot building and coding concepts. In addition, some simple math concepts will be taught or reinforced in the coding parameter that will strengthen the students’ estimation skill. Additionally, honing the students’ dexterity and cognitive functions are of importance as well. We have witnessed students who were weak in visual-spatial abilities and fine motor skills during the earlier stages of the WeDo program, make tremendous improvement and become more confident when they are in this phase of the WeDo program.
As the tougher robots require more connecting steps to complete, they offer many discovery moments for the students who build and code it. These robots mirror many real-world applications such as building an all-wheel drive system of a car, utilising clever coding to vary the motor speed with a sensor, synchronizing the speed of all moving vehicles, etc, hence provide a good insight of the mechanisms used in our daily life to the students.
More autonomous robots are appearing in our daily lives (robots retrieving books and trays, autonomous buses, unmanned aircraft, etc). This program provides our young students an insight in both the hardware and software concepts of robots.
*Certificate of completion will be presented upon completing 52.5 hours of Tougher Robot 30 lessons
