Robotics: Code It, Create It

Become a confident coder and problem-solver in these brand new Science Clubs!

Code and create your own robot the fun way with a Circuit Playground (a minicomputer) that you get to keep!

Whether you want a future career as a doctor, teacher, artist, or business person, programming and robotics will play an important role in most careers of the future. Join us as we explore valuable tech skills while having fun and getting creative in this project-based club. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or experienced programmer– this club is for you! We will teach you how to use the Circuit Playground and you will create your own robot. Record your final project and showcase it on our webpage for all to see.

We hope this club will leave you wanting to do more coding and robotics in the future and build on your newfound skills.

Check out some of the past Circuit Playground projects that students have made!

Scholarships are available through our Linny Fowler STEAM Scholarship Fund.

There are two club options for Robotics: Code It, Create It.
Don’t worry, the content is the same for both!
