Tech4Fun Robot workshops are designed for primary school children of all abilities, we provide all of the equipment needed for your pupils to get hands-on experience to learn about robots and programming.
We use robots which can be programmed with different languages, making them suitable for KS1 & KS2.

Robots are great fun and programming a now seen as an essential skill for the 21st century.
Tech4Funs workshop is a fantastic opportunity for students to write some code and see it come to life through a robot. Something which is a key part of the KS1 & 2 D&T and Computing curriculum.
We use easy to program robots which are suitable for children of all abilities.
Once the students have become familiar with the way they work, the students work in pairs through a series of challenges which promotes collaboration, teamwork and helps develop their thinking skills.

The D&T curriculum requires students to apply their understanding of computing to program, monitor and control their products. Using Robots is perfect for this. The Robots we use are also Lego compatible and allow students to get creative.
