LEGO® Robotics Level 1

Does your little one love to build and disassemble objects, and is he/she already showing signs of having an analytical, engineering mind and interests in science?

Then our Lego® Robotics classes in Singapore may be perfect way to nurture that potential!

These camps are just about assembling LEGO pieces.

In our Level 1 Lego® Robotics camps, you can give your kid a first introduction to STEM, science, engineering and maths, through an immersive and hands-on science camp experience.

He/ She will have to work in teams to build a robot and programme it with a graphics-based software to perform functions.

How the Lego® Robotics camps will help your child:
-Provide an introduction to programming concepts such as sequential execution
-Enhance their decision-making skills
-Channel their energy and creativity to productive use
-Enable them to combine their mind and hands-on aptitude -skilfully, to create something
-Make them more effective team players and work with others to complete a project

Our Lego® Robotics camps are perfect for children between 6 and 12, and are divided into basic and advanced levels (Level 1 and 2).

Read more about the Level 1 camps below, or check out the Lego® Robotics Level 2 classes (only for ages 9 -12).

Ages 6 - 8: Lego® Wedo 2.0 Robotics

This is a simple but stimulating Lego® engineering program that provides an introduction to creating Lego® robot models, while also helping your child learn basic science concepts.

Ages 9-12: Lego® Mindstorms EV3 Robotics

Mindstorms is a slightly more challenging platform which covers robot design and programming in more detail using various sensors and controls.


6 to 8 Years Old

LEGO® WeDo 2.0 Robotics

Our Lego® Robotics WeDo camp encourages analytical thinking gives kids exposure to various science topics such as physics, earth, space sciences, and engineering.

Throughout the camp week students learn how to build WeDo robot models.

For instance, one of the many robot models is a frog so students learn at the same time about stages of an amphibian’s life cycle and different frog species across the world!

Camp activites: 
1) Introduction to Lego® WeDo graphical based programming
2) Controlling robot movements with speed and timing controls
3) Using tilt and motion sensor to modify robot behaviour

This camp is best suited for children who:
1) Love to play with Lego bricks and enjoy building toy models
2) Have a keen sense of imagination and curiosity
3) Enjoy learning about the natural world and exploring how things work.

9 to 12 Years Old



LEGO® Mindstorms EV3 Robotics 

Lego® Mindstorms EV3 is an internationally popular platform, ideally meant for children ages around 9 years and above, because of the relative higher level of thinking and skills needed to master it. 

This camp starts off with an introduction to basic robot structural design, and is followed by more in-depth topics like gear ratios, speed and power contoril, mounting of sensors, and drive precision.

By the end of the camp week, children working in groups, will have built autonomous robots which can respond to their surroundings using various sensors.


Camp activities:

  • Introduction to EV3 graphical based programming
  • Controlling robot movements with rotation sensors and timing controls
  • Use of vaious sensors to program robots:
    • Ultrasonic Sensors to detect obstacles
    • Touch Sensors to control robots
    • Light Sensors to perform line tracings
  • Written test at the end of the camp to ensure all the concepts have been cleary understood


This camp is best suited for children who:

  • Like to play with LEGO bricks and enjoy building toy models
  • Have a keen analytical mind and enjoy problem solving
  • Are interested in learning robot programming
Is your child already familiar with these concepts, and now wants to try a more advanced level of Mindstorms EV3? Then you can sign her/him up for our Lego® Robotics Level 2 camps.
