After School Kids Activities

We run regular after school activities for 6-12 year old to encourage computational thinking, creativity, reason systematically and working collaboratively.  The following activities are cycled through Mornington, Rosebud and Hastings each school term.  A parent or guardian is expected to be present in the library during the activity.  Please see the dates below.

Robot Races

In these sessions, kids will learn how to code different robots to work around the 'Robsticle Course'.   This activity will help develop kids problem solving creatively, offer collaboration, increase critical thinking in a hands-on session. 

These are drop-in sessions. No booking is required.  Suitable for ages 6-12.

Milky Monster Makers

Do you want to make your very own computerised robot?

Over four weeks in this after school program, children will learn the basics of computer programming.  Using a pocket-sized computer introduces children to how software and hardware work together. It has LED light display buttons. Sensors and many input/output features that, when programmed, let it interact with the children.

We will guide your child through the basics of creating programming to change the LED lights and interact with the buttons. Once they have the basics, they will design a monster using milk or egg carton craft supplies and the minicomputer to control the monster's mouth.

Places are limited, and bookings are essential.
