We know that parents are facing challenges finding ways to keep their children occupied during the Summer and STEM Education is a great solution to this issue. ICE Robotics will be conducting online sessions with trained teachers to ensure a fun and educational summer for your children. Our online programs are a great way to keep children engaged while learning new skills outside the classroom.
Learn to Code with Minecraft : 'Hours of Code' (Ages 5 to 8) - Starting at only $100
Hours of Code is focused on introducing basic programming skills in a simple, accessible way. The Minecraft Hour of Code takes about 1 hour to complete and will introduce players to programming logic like ‘Repeat Loops’ and ‘If Statements’.
There are 3 scenarios in Minecraft Hour of Code: Minecraft: Hero’s Journey, Minecraft Designer, and Minecraft Adventurer. There are 12-14 levels in each scenario; each level has an objective that players have to complete in order to move to the next level.
Minecraft Code Builder (Ages 9 to 14) - Starting at only $100
Code Builder for Minecraft: Education Edition allows educators and students to explore, create, and play in a Minecraft world. Partnering with familiar learn-to-code platforms like Tynker and Microsoft MakeCode, players can not only develop computational thinking but can also apply their creations across the curriculum.
We use Code Builder to introduce computer science to your kids, or to explore the subject like Match and Science.
Mobile App Development (Ages 9 to 14) - Starting at only $100
Do you have an idea? Build an app and transform your idea into reality.
Coding is telling a computer, app, phone or website what you want it to do.
We sue MIT App Inventor, which is an innovative introduction to programming and app creation that transforms the complex language of text-based coding into visual, drag-and-drop building blocks. The simple graphical interface grants even an inexperienced novice ability to create a basic, fully functional app within an hour or less.
Why Robotics and Coding?
New Age Jobs
Learning to Code prepares kids for the world we live in today. There are tons of jobs and occupations that use the code directly, like web designers, software developers, and robotics engineers, and even more where knowing how to code is a huge asset—jobs in manufacturing, nanotechnology or information sciences.
Learning To Code Develops Problem Solving And Computational Thinking Skills – The skills that come with computer programming help kids develop new ways of thinking and foster problem-solving techniques that can have big repercussions in other areas.
Coding Is Fun! -Beyond the practical reasons for learning how to code, there’s the fact that creating a game or animation can be really fun for kids.
