Building Confidence and Skills
Does your child have boundless imagination? Are they constantly asking questions about how things work? Does their knack for story-telling weave into every new experience?
At Little Robot Friends we set out to build an environment where creative kids can learn the tools and techniques to bring their wild ideas into reality. Our focus is on quality mentorship where we can:
- build confidence
- develop new digital and hands-on skills
- encourage collaboration and idea sharing
- foster a compassionate and empathetic environment
Our Coding Club meets weekly to work in small groups (1 instructor to every 5 kids) to learn about a variety of 21st century skills such as:
- Coding (block-based)
- Basic Robotics
- 3D Design & Printing
- Graphic Design
- Video Game Design
Students are divided into 3 levels, based on their age and familiarity with technology:
- Pico (ages 6-7)
- Nano (ages 7-10)
- Micro (ages 9-12)
Pico (ages 6-7) groups have little experience with coding or computers and need to learn some of the basic skills such as typing, exploring the computer, basic introduction to circuits, and more. We introduce all the various ways digital skills can be used to explore their creativity.
Nano (ages 7-10) groups have either completed our Pico level, or are already familiar with computers and coding. They aren't experts, but have a sense of what the tools do and how they could be used. We start to introduce how they can combine skills to create bigger ideas.
Micro (ages 9-12) groups have typically completed a Nano level, or have a developed understanding of computers and coding. They want to take their knowledge to the next-level by learning new coding languages and more advanced programs and skills.
Program Location & Duration
All of our Coding Club programs run in full terms (12 weeks) or half terms (6 weeks) and individual sessions run for 1 hour. Sessions are run in-person at our HQ on 1832 Danforth Ave, between Woodbine & Coxwell subway stations.
