In WeDo 2.0 YANTRA program students will learn how to write programs using WeDo 2.0 software or Scratch 3.0 to control and explore the unique LEGO models that they have designed! The WeDo 2.0 and Scratch are icon-based, drag and drop software, which provides self-derived, easy to use programming settings for a beginner learner. WeDo 2.0 YANTRA program is geared for students 6 – 9 years of age group.
Children will be operate the Robots using laptops with Scratch 3.0 programming or WeDo 2.0 software that links to the physical world. They will also discover how to work with sensors to control their Robot function.
WeDo 2.0 YANTRA program is the ideal precursor to our Bronco EV3 Advanced Robotics Program.
WeDo 2.0 YANTRA is an outstanding source and a Robot to enhance their learning in LITERACY, NUMERACY, SCIENCE, and INVESTIGATION as a variety of skills within a curriculum.
