The PA DAY Workshop is available from 9 AM to 4 PM, students will receive two snack breaks and a lunch break. In consideration to all students, please ensure the snacks and lunch is nut-free. *Additional care is available for $7 per hour, please make a note during registration.

At the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems Inc (IRIS) students have the opportunity to build and program robots of various sizes, shapes and levels of complexity! STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) concepts are introduced using robot technology through project-based learning. Students are encouraged to approach STEM hands-on and appreciate the growing significance of robotics systems and 21st century skills!

Students in the 5 to 8 age group can start off with theLEGO® WeDo™ ROBOTICS  program which utilizes the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 educational kits and acts as an introduction to robotics and programming! During our sessions students will have the opportunity to go beyond the classroom and exercise their skillset in an atmosphere of creativity and teamwork!


The LEGO® WeDo™ ROBOTICS is a tethered robotics system designed to serve as an intermediate step between the more fully featured robotics platform and regular, non-robotic LEGO®. It’s an easy-to-use set that introduces young students to robotics and teach them to build LEGO® models featuring working motors and sensors; program their models; and explore a series of cross-curricular, theme-based activities while developing their skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, as well as language and literacy. The hands-on sessions demonstrate how robots can be applied to problem solving and collaborative learning within a curriculum context and foster a differentiated approach to learning whilst enhancing the integration of robotics into the classroom.

Age Group: 5 Years to 8 Years
