SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAMS (AGES 6-9) - $140 + GST per Day
A week full of coding, creating, smashing, designing and gaming. We encourage learning through play; by setting STEAM based challenges young minds will be exploring, practicing and learning essential skills for the digital age. Each activity will run for 75 minutes with short breaks in between to explore the scavenger hunt set up on campus. Discounts apply when booking more than one day!
Intro to A.I: Code with Cozmo Cozmo is an Artificially Intelligent robot controlled by code which even the newest newbie can grasp. This little guy can pick up blocks and avoid obstacles all based on input from the user. Participants will have the opportunity to program a task and compete with one another to provoke their computational thinking.
Intro to coding: Code with Sphero Sphero is a robotic ball incorporated into a gaming device that you control through code. This activity is loved by all and is a great stepping stone into the world of coding. The 6-9 age group will use Sphero’s block coding to navigate through mazes, play bowling and even create works of art.
Intro to Robotics: Build with Lego Wedo Wedo takes an activity enjoyed by all and provides an introduction to robotics, using LEGO models which incorporate motors and sensors. They will program their models and explore cross-curricular activities developing their skills in science, technology and mathematics. We encourage exploration and play and set simple tasks and challenges.
STEM Exploration Breaking electronics is the basis for better design. Participants will take apart old electronics such as computers, radios and DVD players to learn about what each component does and how they all work together to form a product. They will also be encouraged to put it all back together to master their finer motor skills.
Conductive Little Monsters Made using playdoh and LED's are a great way to introduce circuits to younger kids, using conductive playdoh they will create monsters, cars, houses etc and connect LED’s to the playdough. Then by connecting the playdoh to a battery pack and switch they will explore how electricity works in a safe environment.
Crafty Circuits Integrating art with electronics to create light up designs that use conductive circuit stickers, coin cell batteries and adhesive copper tape. By taking the soldering out of electronics, circuits become creative, safe and simple to teach. By adding a tonne of craft to the mix their imagination will run wild.
Please bring along packed lunch. Snacks will be provided throughout the day.
