We'll be exploring movement using motors - zoom zoom!

This class is designed for kids with some coding experience and want to do more with electronics. (Perfect if you've already done our Coding Clubs last year, or if you're already a whiz at coding in Scratch and/or Minecraft).

Using the Little Robot Friends' base as a microcontroller, kids will learn how to control a DC geared motor. Together we will build a cardboard car and gain in-depth understanding of how we program things to move. Future smart car engineer, anyone?
