$296.00

At the LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 Masterclass, your child will learn the full spectrum of uses, techniques, concepts and skills required to effectively create problem-solving robots using the LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 set.

What Your Child Will Learn

The Masterclass programme consists of 2 Levels:

Level 1 - Guided Learning with Science Context
Level 2 - Open-ended Projects with Computational Thinking

At Level 1, students will be introduced to the different parts available and how to use them in simple to intermediate level projects. The projects and models are set in science themes such as natural sciences and physical sciences, where they will learn various science concepts along with engineering and building skills.

At Level 2, students would have a good grasp of the WeDo 2.0 set. Instructors will pose weekly challenges in various themes that students will attempt to solve using the WeDo 2.0 set. The challenges will surround real-world issues such as global warming, animal rescue, space transportation and many more. Students get to build original ideas and also learn to communicate their thought process and operations of their models. Instructors will guide with troubleshooting and reflection process to build resilience, critical thinking skills and boost their creativity process through useful prompts.

 

Talent Development & Progression

Upon graduating the LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 Masterclass Programme, students are encouraged to continue to the LEGO Education SPIKE Prime Masterclass Programme and join the FIRST LEGO League Singapore, an annual national robotics competition using SPIKE Prime robots.

Yes, you can. We charge $46/hr for trial lessons. We recommend a 1 to 1.5hr session for trial lessons. Book any day/time you like.

2. My child has experience with WeDo 2.0/SPIKE Essential. Is SPIKE Prime very similar?

The SPIKE Prime set works similarly to the SPIKE Essential in terms of hardware. However, the level of difficulty of the projects for SPIKE Prime is higher than SPIKE Essential.

The SPIKE Prime set is very different from the WeDo 2.0 set in terms of hardware and not all electronic hardware can be used seamlessly together, unlike the SPIKE Essential. However, the level of difficulty of the projects for SPIKE Prime is higher than WeDo 2.0 Set.

3. My child has experience with SPIKE Prime. Can he/she skip Level 4?

If your child has only attended one-off workshops for SPIKE Prime, your child may not be fully equipped for Level 4 as it requires a full mastery of basic & intermediate concepts. You can opt for a trial lesson for our instructor to do an assessment of your child's abilities.

If your child has gone through a comprehensive training session in school, please provide a certificate of completion of the programme to be considered for more advanced level/s.


4. If my child can't make it for that week, will there be a makeup session?

Yes, your child can makeup for missed sessions before the next weekly lesson.

Internationally-Recognised

FIRST LEGO League is an internationally recognized STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) organised by FIRST and The LEGO Group for children and students. In a competition based setting, students use LEGO Education robotics sets to develop robots and compete against each other in a competition which exposes students to real world problem solving, STEAM and character development.

 

Real-World Challenges faced in Industries

Each season starts in August and ends in April the next year. FIRST determines a real-world theme for the year around which the competition revolves and the challenges based on. 

 

Recommended for Portfolio Building

Certificates of participation & Awards from FLL are internationally recognized and good to have in the portfolio for Direct School Admission (DSA) or Scholarship applications.

 

FIRST® LEGO® League Explore: 6 - 9 years old

FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge: 9 - 16 years old

 

FLL Explore (Ages 6-9)

FIRST LEGO League Explore (FLLE) (formerly known as FIRST Lego League Jr.) is a non-competitive robotics program designed for children ages 6-9. It is one of the programs established by FIRST.

FIRST LEGO League Explore follows the same theme given to the FIRST LEGO League Challenge. While FIRST LEGO League Challenge teams conduct research projects and design autonomous robots specifically to carry out missions relating to the topic, FIRST LEGO League Explore teams conduct much smaller projects and make robotics models out of LEGO Education SPIKE Essential, the latest robotics set by LEGO Education to illustrate one part of the theme. 

Each team will have a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 participants.
Recommended 2 pax/team due to Safety Measurement Restrictions.

Direct School Admissions-Recognised (DSA)

The National Robotics Competition (NRC) is the largest local robotics competition event in Singapore that spans across different age groups, from 5 to 18 years old. It is a prestigious competition that is recognised and remains a staple for DSA applications. Students can participate in different competitive events that uses different robotics systems and sets under the NRC such as KUBO Robotics, Arduino Education, LEGO Education and more. Each season starts in May and ends in September the same year. 

Certificates of participation & Awards from NRC are internationally recognized and good to have in the portfolio for Direct School Admission (DSA) or other Scholarship applications.

Exposure to Local Talent

Every year, schools in Singapore will send their best teams to compete in the event. Participants will get to meet and befriend local talent in robotics. Teams will also be exposed to others' strategies and gain priceless experience.

The competition allows our local talent to build confidence in order to compete internationally one day.

    A Comprehensive Comparison: LEGO® SPIKE™ Prime vs. MINDSTORMS® for Robotics Education (2023)

    Oct 06, 2023

    In the realm of robotics education, choosing between LEGO's SPIKE Prime and the now-retired Mindstorms EV3 is a decision of paramount importance. Our comprehensive comparison meticulously dissects the distinctions between these esteemed kits, aiding in your informed choice. Additionally, we explore their relevance within the context of FIRST LEGO League (FLL), the prestigious robotics competition that ignites young innovators' imaginations. As the Mindstorms era bids farewell, SPIKE Prime steps into the spotlight with its sleek, user-friendly design. The hardware evolution, sensor advancements, and versatile programming interfaces set SPIKE Prime apart. Its cable convenience, port possibilities, and unique features cater to young robotics enthusiasts. In terms of compatibility with FLL, SPIKE Prime's ease of building and modular design make it an excellent choice for budding participants. While both kits have their merits, SPIKE Prime's user-friendliness and adaptability stand out, offering a delightful robotics journey for aspiring engineers.
