Children will develop abstract reasoning skills and learn to “code” using a variety of robot construction systems including Cubelets, Ozobots and Dash & Dot. Students will learn the importance of inputs and outputs, weighted averages, persevering through a rapid redesign process, and “making” towards a goal. The second half  of the semester will introduce students to Scratch, a visual programming language developed by MIT to educate children about programming concepts.  Building and coding challenges will be varied based on student’s age and ability. In addition, team building skills will be emphasized. Max 10 per class.
