Exploring Robotics

Robots have been a subject of fascination and entertainment for generations, both in fiction and in real life. In Exploring Robotics, your child will learn about how robots move, see, touch, and hear. Under the guidance of classroom instructors, students will apply what they have learned by designing, building, and programming their own robots and mechanical devices.

Your child will explore:

  • How robots accomplish tasks
  • Simple mechanical systems
  • Programming Microcontrollers


This course is open to students entering Grades 1 through 3.


During the summer, Exploring Robotics is held at Overlake Christian Church (9900 Willows Rd, Redmond, WA 98052).
