Beginner STEMbotics: Robotics & Coding

Hyett Education

Students can build from instructions on hundreds of designs, or get creative and build their own robots. Once built, the LEGO robots are capable of moving and detecting other objects using motion and tilt sensors using icon or block coding.

We take a very cross-curricular approach to our sessions and will happily adapt our workshops to suit your class topics and themes. These sessions have particularly strong links to the computing curriculum, design and technology curriculum and science curriculum.

For these sessions we typically use LEGO WeDo 2.0 equipment for KS1 and LEGO Spike Essentials for LKS2. Sessions are differentiated by complexity of robots and coding. Shorter sessions limit the robot builds possible.

Recommended Format:

  • 2-3 sessions per day (approx 75-120 mins each).

  • Up to 34 children working in pairs.

  • Can be delivered in the classroom. Access to a screen/projector required.

Taster Experience Format:

  • 2-3 sessions per day (approx 75-90 mins each).

  • Up to 60 children per session working in threes.

  • Hall or other large space required to accommodate 2 classes. Access to a screen/projector required.

Cost: £597/day ex VAT

Expected outcomes

Children will complete a variety of Computing curriculum objectives in both KS1 and KS2.

Students will develop their knowledge of key vocabulary and apply it within the session.

Other outcomes are dependent upon the challenge. We will communicate with you to adapt our sessions and ensure key objectives are met in each session.
