Robotics with Legos
YouCanTech lets kids 7 - 12 see they can control technology and create with it. And nothing better for creativity than Legos, especially when they’re real programmable robots.
It works like this: A family signs up and we ship them the robot kit. They schedule a virtual kickoff session with one of our coaches, where they get connected and learn the programming basics. Kids then follow self-paced activities on YouCanTech.org, which are all story narratives like Milo on Mars, The Robot Zoo, and Gears & Engineers. A few days later, we have a check-up session to encourage and answer questions. After 2 weeks, they pack the kit in its box and mail it back with the return shipping label. Easy, and lots of fun!
