Building a Robot

Rated the best virtual coding camps by parents and kids

90 Minutes of STRUCTURED ROUTINE will go a long way this summer

Maker Robotics camps are a great way to introduce young kids to coding. Campers will make cool inventions using motors, sensors and craft supplies and code their creations to comet to life!

You don't need expensive Robotics kits to learn about Electronics and Robotics. With a little bit of imagination and a bit of help from Code-it Hacks maker camps, you will be inventing cool creations in no time.

With the long summer ahead, our two hour daily camps offer structure, routine and educational fun to your child all while learning key 21st century skills.

What to expect?

Our Maker Robotics camps are super engaging and offers hands-on play-based approach to learning coding skills and intro to electronics and robotics. 

  • Coding fundamentals

  • Engineering principles

  • Intro to Robotics and electronics: your will work with sensors, motors and circuit boards

  • Understanding of solving a real-life problem with technology

  • Design session in breakout teams

  • Building multiple unique projects

  • Alpha and Beta Testing

Friday Fun:

Every Friday, we have an industry specialist leader join our camp for a special lesson.

Students will get the opportunity to present their project and receive valuable feedback from the industry specialists
