Build & Program Robots with LEGO® Education kits!

What parents are saying about our STEM Robotics Programs

Daedalos organizers run a brilliant program.  It is so cool. Every term has a new theme and you get to build and program whatever you think will work.

My son has also done an after-care with them during a camp week and was reluctant to leave when I came to pick him up because he was having so much fun.

The instructors are responsive to the children and are very good at helping them work out why the robot is not doing what it needs to, without telling the children what to do.  They are diplomatic and are very comfortable dealing with enthusiastic and creative children.

Most Lego and Robotics program just focus on ‘fun creation.’  My son also has fun, but he is also being challenged to think and then create ways to overcome obstacles.  So relevant to life!

My child loved spring break camp and particularly enjoyed the Minotaur maze and building the remote control for the robots.

Daedalos has a creative, enthusiastic team who inspire the children to meet the building and programming challenges.  They are very well-organized and clearly love what they do.

My son does not want to go to any other Lego or robotics program.  He never gets tired of it and loves building and programming to meet the various challenges.

My son is a Lego enthusiast and first attended a Daedalos Lego Robotics camp at spring break in 2015.  Since that camp, he only wants to attend Daedalos Enrichment Programs Lego camps/classes.

The Lego Robotics program beats anything I have found in the Lower Mainland. Their team­based approach helps kids work together to use their intellect and creativity to overcome obstacles and create robots that can tackle issues that surround us (recycling, aging, etc).

My son is looking forward to coming back again for the 4th time. Lego robotics is one class I never have to ask him twice if he wants to attend. He loves it. – DM

All about our Camp Programs

Build, Code, Learn = Fun!

At Robotics Camps, kids create, build, program and operate robotic animals, machines and vehicles using LEGO® Education Robotics and Computer Programming. We place your child into grade level appropriate activities based on skill, ability, experience and preference.

Every Camp Unique

We plan different activities customized to the mix of returning and new students, so that no returning student ever does the same thing over again, but instead is given a harder challenge as they progress in their robotics and programming skills.

Hands-on with 21st Century Skills

Robotics is a highly engaging way to learn 21st century skills including critical and computational thinking, problem solving and creativity. Kids learn coding skills  but also engineering and design skills by building robots that actually function, move and respond to stimuli. Because they’re paired up in teams, they learn valuable communication and teamwork skills along the way, giving them valuable skills for the future.

Typical Schedule:

Morning Session (9:00-12:00pm): Full Robotics Program for all Grade levels

Lunch break (12:00-1:00pm) – Outside at the University Chapel park and covered table area. Students bring their own lunch, do outside activities at the park, play sports such as badminton, basketball – supervision, sports equipment provided

Afternoon Session (1:00pm-3:00pm): Full Robotics Program for all Grade levels, with more active teamwork events such as Competition Games and Challenge Missions.

Levels

Beginner Robotics with LEGO® Education WeDo 1.0

Typically for Grades 1-2 students, but based on assessed level of competency with LEGO building, coding and teamwork skills. Kids use LEGO WeDo 1.0 kits to build and operate a variety of mechanical constructions. Advanced students in this level proceed to Scratch based software and more complex builds.

Young Engineers with LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0

Typically for Grades 2-4 students, but based on assessed level of competency with LEGO building, coding and teamwork skills. Kids use LEGO WeDo 2.0 kits with Bluetooth connectivity to iPads/Chromebooks to build and operate a variety of mechanical constructions. Advanced students in this level proceed to Scratch based software and more complex builds.

Robotics Programming & Competitions with LEGO® Education Mindstorms

Typically for Grades 4-8 students, but based on assessed level of competency with LEGO building, coding and teamwork skills. Kids use LEGO Mindstorms Education kits with to build and operate a variety of complex robotic constructions. Advanced students in this level proceed to RobotC graphical and code based software and more complex builds. Top students are selected to join Robotics Competitions such as FIRST LEGO League and BCIT Gearbots Code Challenge.

Advanced Robotics & RobotC Coding with VEX IQ

Designed for Middle and High School students, Advanced Robotics and Coding with VEX IQ bring students through training in RobotC graphical and code based software to prepare for competitions such as BCIT Gearbots Code Challenge and VEX IQ Competitions both provincially and worldwide.
