Children will begin to explore the world of robotics as they build simple LEGO® models that teach the fundamentals of robotic design and coding in this awesome RoboPets program! Children will learn about mechanical movement, habitats and examine the basic needs of different animals as they build a robotic fish, alligators, puppies and frogs! Each week, children will be given a simple program to operate their robotic build. Students are then encouraged to use critical thinking and programming skills to enhance their robot’s program. Whether making their build respond to motion and tilt sensors, adding loops, or creating fun sounds, children will learn valuable programming skills in an easy to use programming format most appropriate for children this age. Your child is sure to love this animal-inspired robotic program! (Note: Families who are unable to pick-up and return the robotics kit from the MITY office will be required to pay shipping fees.)

Students are grouped by age (1st/2nd and 3rd/4th) to ensure the appropriate level of challenge. Each class contains four synchronous learning sessions, hands-on activities and ways to extend learning at home. In addition, one week of each session is used exclusively for social emotional development and fun community building activities.
