Robotics After School Programs for Kids

Engaging, Exciting Robotics Education for Students

Our after school programs are designed to provide students with a broad understanding of robotics and coding. All of our courses have been precisely tailored to boost imaginative and innovative thinking in kids. The kits and course content of the programs are specially curated by our Engineers in the in-house labs keeping the students’ intrigued throughout the course. Open source components and programming languages are used to provide endless opportunities for students to customise their robots.

Multiple courses are available for the students to explore the field of robotics and programming.

Highlights

  • students build and code their robots from start to finish
  • use of DIY components exclusively designed and manufactured by ABG
  • innovative teaching approach; enhancing problem-solving skills
  • a holistic STEM learning experience
  • certifications by ABG

Grade 1- Grade 4

Junior Robotics

The ‘Junior Robotics’ is the basic robotics program for students intended to introduce them to the field of robotics. This program focuses on the fundamentals of robotics and coding where they will build their robot from start to finish and further code the robots using the drag and drop programming language. Students will be encouraged to think out of the box and develop own way of solving problems.

 

The program is designed in the form of a fun activity for kids which provide learning outcomes with hands-on experience. Thorough understanding of components including actuators, sensors and microcontroller board will be achieved by end of the program.

 

Problem Statement: Building and coding an autonomous robot using sensors and actuators

Program Level: Introductory

Program suited for: Grade 1 – Grade 4

Prerequisite: None

Duration: 9-10 hours

Frequency: One hour per week for one school term

Cost: $290*

Optional $99* to take the robot home

 

*All prices are exclusive of GST.

Cost: $290*

Optional $99* to take the robot home


Grade 5 and above

Foundation of Robotics

The ‘Foundation of Robotics Advanced’ is the introductory robotics program for students intended to familiarise them to the field of robotics and line coding. This program focuses on the fundamentals of robotics and coding where they will build their robot from start to finish and further code the robots using the line coding. Students will be encouraged to think out of the box and develop own way of solving problems.

 

The program is designed in the form of a fun activity for kids which provide learning outcomes with hands-on experience. Thorough understanding of components including actuators, sensors and microcontroller board will be achieved by end of the program.
