Pre-Knowledge and Age Requirements.
This course is intended to be a complete beginner's course for students with little or no robotics experience. If your child is eager to get into robotics and needs a solid foundation, this is the right course! We will be building important building and programming skills from the ground up to ensure students get the most out of the course.
Age is usually not a determining factor in a students abilities in robotics, however, we do recommend your child has some level of experience using a keyboard and mouse/trackpad on a laptop, as it's an important skill to have for programming. If you have any questions regarding your student's eligibility for the course, please reach out to Oscar for further details.
If your child has had significant experience in robotics and robotics competitions, this may not be the right course for them. Consider our up and coming Summer Workshops which will cover more advanced concepts and competitions. Be sure to follow our event page and stay tuned!
