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. 

 

Edison Lego Club Challenge - SPECIAL EVENT

Computer science isn’t just about writing programs! Enrol your child in our Edison robot design challenge and they will explore design thinking and put 21st century skills to the test. The goal of this 6-week program will be to design an Edison Candy Dispenser to enter the Edison Contest.   

Please note: Lollies will be supplied on 14 November for testing purposes if you do not want your child to eat the lollies please let staff know.

Edison robots are an engaging tool for teaching kids computational thinking and computer programming in a hands-on way. Edison is Lego brick compatible in addition to having their own EdCreate construction kits. Suitable for ages 8-12.

This is a 6-week program on Thursdays 4 pm. You should be able to attend all 6 sessions, as the course is progressive with each week building on the previous week's contact.
