After School

The CoeBotics programs are an after school program, with the exception of some in class-room sessions at teachers requests.  It is a year-round set of programs, which is divided in to two distinct tracks.  A Fall section — predominantly focused on the International LEGO League competitions, and a Spring session with many shorter sessions to offer as many students an opportunity to experience Robotics.  Within this there are programs for both the jrCoeBotics — K through 2nd grade, and CoeBotics — 3rd through 5th grade students.  All of our program operating within a Seattle Public School, follow the appropriate SPS rules.  Please read the Program Rules as to how we operate before registering for any of our offerings.

Our Spring Sessions run from March 4, 20014 – May 15th, 2014.  The spring sessions are grouped into 3 distinct categories: JrCoeBotics 1a/1b, JrCoeBotics 2 – both for grades K – 2, and CoeBotics 3a/b – grades 3 – 5.

JrCoeBotics 1a/b will host two session which can be taken separate or together.  We will focus on Stage Performances – build LEGO creations both motor and computer operated to perform a Dances and other music scripted fun movements.  We will study human movement and create arms, legs, bodies and other mechanized creations. Have you seen the new LEGO Movie? Well think what is possible, can you create some of the movements and scenes using LEGO? This is a 90 minute session.

Students will learn:

  • Basic motor and controls – what makes wheels move, how do we drive faster and slower and how can we control it with a computer!
  • Basic body movement – using LEGO, motors, gears and WeDo and synchronizing with Music and/or video.

CoeBotics 31/b will host two sessions which can be taken separate or together.  Using LEGO Mindstorms students will create robots to perform Rescue Missions in real life scenarios such as earth quake damage, tsunami damage and the like.  Their goal will be to create a robot which can navigate an ever changing debris field and rescue stranded people and return them to safety.  The course is based on the International JrRoboCub Rescue competition from Australia.

CoeBotics program during the Spring Season will be structured in a team format, where 2 to 4 students on a team create a robot which can play a specific robot game involving skill, speed, accuracy, agility and tactics!

  • Students will be using both the Mindstorm NXT and EV3 system to create highly interactive robots
