Want a better way for your child to spend his/her vacation days?

Our Pre-Robotics and Coding & Game Design programs are designed to allow your child to engage, flourish and enjoy their day off. Please note: Regardless of which class they take, or how many times they have taken it, our students do not repeat previous projects - they are always challenged and, when they are ready, they work on a new and interesting assignment.

Required Skills: None. Open to curious children of all skills and abilities.

 

LEGO® PRE-ROBOTICS

Kindergarten students build robots (such as the alligator, turtle, train, and car) using LEGO® building blocks and motors. In the process of making their constructions move, they will learn basic engineering and simple machine principles. They will learn about electricity and how gear meshing works to transmit energy. They will also engage in pairs and work with their mentors to develop critical teamwork and collaboration skills.  Students use their imagination and apply newly learned mechanical skills to either build their own creations, or follow a blueprint.

Required Skills: None. Open to curious children of all skills and abilities.

 

CODING & GAME DESIGN

In our coding and game design program, students learn the basics of programming logic through hands-on activities and MIT’s introductory programming language called ScratchJr! Each thematic lesson, created and tested in the winter and spring of 2019, takes your child on an adventure in which their imagination comes to life through interactive stories and games. Our expert mentors and the software’s interface make programming a snap! Literally. By snapping together graphical blocks, students learn to design, edit and modify characters, add their own voices, sounds, and movement, all while solving problems and developing foundational math and literacy skills. ScratchJr. was developed by Dr. Mitchel Resnick and associates of the MIT Media Lab. Dr. Resnick is one of Robofun’s Board members and trusted advisors.

Please note: Regardless of which class they take, or how many times they have taken it, our students do not repeat previous projects - they are always challenged and, when they are ready, they work on a new and interesting assignment.

WHAT PARENTS SAY

“What I find unique and impressive about Robofun is their inclusion philosophy; everyone is welcomed and every child’s learning style and behavior are carefully attended to. Robofun is structured and very friendly, and they literally unlocked my child’s creativity. Watching his level of pride when he comes home and can tell me about what he’s constructed and how it works is very fulfilling. There are areas where Henry has trouble "fitting in," but at Robofun he's just like everyone else.”
