Walder Science Center

Robotics and Computer Programming

Workshops in Robotics and Computer Programming 2018-19

Description: Coding, with many application including robotics, are rapidly revolutionizing the fields of technology, medicine, education, and more!  Children in grades 4-8 are invited to come join us Tuesdays and Thursdays after school between 4:30 and 6:30pm starting Tuesday Oct 9th to experiment with and learn these cutting-edge skills!

Our instructors work with an innovative curriculum, designed to introduce and engage these important skills to younger grades, until they are ready to write real programs and use them to control various robotic devices.  We have a separate girl’s classes with a qualified female instructor, and a boy’s class with a qualified male instructor, each in independent locations.

Cost: The cost for each child is $10 per individual session, $60 for 8 sessions, or $100 for 16 sessions.  Siblings join for half price.  The program is located at 3050 W. Touhy Ave (girls in the Cong. Adas Yeshurun building, and boys in the Walder Science Center building).

Sign up: Preregistration is required so that we can be prepared (with staff and supplies) for the right amount of students. Please send us an email at programs@walderlab.org or give us a call at 773-649-5360 to sign up or for more information.
