Course description

The LEGO WeDo coding and robotics program combines traditional LEGO bricks with sensors, servo motors and microprocessors to create machines. The program adheres to the United States Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which uses a hands-on approach to improve the problem-solving skills and computational thinking abilities of children. These skills are developed through a fun and interactive process. Engineering principles are included. Empire Code Education is an award winner in the International First LEGO League competition, with all 3 teams winning an award each in 2021.
For Ages: 5 to 9.

FAQ

Q: Can my 4 year old join LEGO Robotics?
A: Not as yet, however, if your kid is able to use an iPad or is proficient with building traditional LEGO bricks, we can try a 1-hour trial class to understand your kid better. We suggest you look through our other programs as well. Please click here for Cubetto or ScratchJr.

Q: How long will the students finish each level?
A: Between 40 and 60 hours, depending on the child’s needs. We run an individualised learning method, which enables students to learn at their own pace and progress according to their ability. This helps them become independent programmers in the future.

Q: Where are the available class locations?
A: For Singapore there is a choice of our Tanglin campus for all courses.
