Children work on different robotics projects together and study robotics topics, like coding and engineering. Children also get to experience the design process, work with computer aided design programmes and then get to 3D print their objects. While participating in the robotics club children may get the opportunity to join a robotics team when they have become experienced enough to enter competitions like the World Robotics Olympiad. In this case the robotics club meetings focus on preparing for different competition tasks
There are many benefits for children who join a robotics club, with the most obvious being the opportunity to strengthen their STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics) skills. Robotics club combines technology, engineering, and in many cases math. With so many future careers focusing on STEM, robotics is a great way to give your child a head start.
Brainstorm Boffins Robotics Club’s first lessons for the year will start 20 February 2023. Newcomers welcome. No experience needed.
