CoderZ Adventure 2

The adventure continues! Part 2 of our intro to coding and robotics course builds on existing knowledge, while challenging kids to explore new concepts in programming. This time around, they’ll learn to use a distance sensor to help their robot adapt to an unpredictable environment in Weebo’s Manor. They’ll blast through obstacles with ‘Push Blocks’ using logical problem solving and debugging in Cyber Blocks. And they’ll master the coordinate system with the help of a helicopter bot in our cool Arctic Lab.

Who this course is for: Kids ages 9-12 who have completed Coderz Adventure 1. Building on their knowledge, they’ll cover new ground in STEM and CS.
