Learning to code is fun. Learning to code with Cozmo is Awesome! Cozmo is a sneaky robot who always seems to be getting up to mischief. But don’t let his charming AI fool you – he is a powerful force for teaching code!

In this Think Camp, we learn to control Cozmo’s every movement through code – putting our thinking caps on and working with Cozmo to help him find his favourite food (colourful buttons!) and avoid his mortal enemy Zyphoid the boxing-duck.

What will my Child Learn?

Fundamental Code

Using the robot Cozmo, your child will learn (or refresh) basic coding principles that can be applied in many different contexts. They will work closely with a partner, applying the theory they have learned to fun, practical problems using a simple drag-and-drop coding interface.

Debugging

Making mistakes, known as “finding bugs” is a crucial part of becoming a coder. Your child will learn different techniques for debugging the code they write allowing them to solve problems more effectively.

Collaborative Coding

Learning to code with a similar-ability partner is extremely important. Your child will learn how to collaborate effectively, allowing the partnership to solve problems that are harder than either student could solve alone.
