Lego® Robotics

Robotics is a field of study that incorporates engineering and programming to design and build robots that solve problems and help people. 

Excellerate Learning Studio is excited to offer a series of robotics courses in which students can master design-thinking, engineering concepts, and coding in a hands-on learning environment. 

Students will have so much fun in leaning how to create robot movements and gain valuable skills in STEM field.

The Engineering
Design Thinking Process

Our students are not just learning how to code or learn to move robots. The core of our  classes are built around this Design Thinking Process. Students will be challenged to identify problems, explore solutions, and come up with the design through iterating process. This is a critical part of STEM education. 

FIRST Lego League Challenge
for Grade 4-8

Robotics offers students a chance to apply what they have learned in math and science to real-world problems. In addition, robotics can help students develop essential 21st century skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. For these reasons, robotics is an exciting and important area of study that can have a lasting impact on students.

The highlight of this Excellerate Robotics program is the FIRST® Lego® League championship. Excellerate Robotics Courses were designed to lower the barrier so that students and parents can a part of this exhilarating competition experience.  

Friendly competition is at the heart of challenge, as teams of students ages 9-16 engage in research, problem-solving, coding and engineering – building and programming a Lego® robot that navigates the missions of a robot game. As part of challenge, teams also participate in a research project to identify and solve a relevant real-world problem.

Introducing Robotics Labs

Each Lab is consist of 4 month and starts in September, February, or June.

101 Foundation

Robot Trainer Lab

Through a series of guided exercises, your child will learn the basics of building and coding autonomous robots. They'll also gain an understanding of the engineering design thinking process, and learn how to use various robot components in competition. By the end of the course, your child will be able to program their robot to perform a variety of tasks.

201 Intermediate

Engineering Lab

Using the engineering design thinking process and coding skills they learned from the 101 Robot Trainer Lab, students will be able to connect other STEM concepts in a dynamic team environment. With the help of the previous year's projects, students will be able to create robots that are capable of completing various series of complex tasks and to connect the real-world STEM with the robotics challenge.

301 Advanced

Design Lab

This exciting course will your little engineer's knowledge to the next level. Students will build on their existing skills by creating advanced models and programs, and then put those skills to the test by walking through a previous  robotics competition. This course will help them prepare for actual competitions, give them the confidence they need to succeed, and equip them with STEM leadership.

FIRST League

Competition Team

Students who are in Engineering Lab or above will be eligible to join our competition team. Students meet weekly for the robot game, STEM research project, design challenge, community service, team building, or field trip opportunities. The competition starts in August and the team will work to advance to state and the global championship in April.
