Build Robots. Build Friendships. Build Confidence!

Looking for new activities in the Honolulu area to inspire your child outside of school?

Three words: Robotics for Kids!

Robotics for Kids uses fun, hands-on projects to get your child's creative juices flowing. Your child will learn how to build and program robots with LEGO® bricks and software -- all while making friends, developing new skills and having a great time with STEM. For many kids, robotics class is a highlight of their week.

To fully engage and challenge your aspiring engineer, computer programmer or scientist, we have several kids' robotics programs available:

  • Grades 2-4: Robotics 101 and 102
  • Grades 4-6: Robotics 201 and 202

First timer? Your child is welcome at our center in Kahala - Honolulu. He or she can jump into Robotics 101 or Robotics 201 without any prior experience. Our teachers are happy to adjust to your child's ability.

How we teach kids robotics each week

In each Robotics for Kids class at Sylvan of Kahala - Honolulu, your child and a buddy work together to plan and build a new robot using LEGO® bricks, letting their creativity and imaginations loose. Along the way, they learn science and engineering concepts, such as how pulleys, levers and motors work.

As the kids' robots take shape, they experiment with LEGO® Education's award-winning WeDo™ software. They discover how to apply computer programming concepts and find new ways to get their "bot" moving.

Then, the energy levels (and smiles) really reach a high point, as the kids challenge other teams to friendly games or take part in imaginative play.

At the end of each robotics class, your child enjoys a wrap-up activity to reinforce the STEM skills he or she learned in class. (You'll hear all about it on the way home.)

A few reasons your child (and you!) will love Robotics for Kids:

  • Unique STEM curriculum. While your child is having a blast creating robotics, you'll know he or she is learning practical STEM skills. (Just imagine how these new-found skills could inspire your child in the future!)
  • Creative problem solving. In each Robotics for Kids class, your child participates in creative and challenging activities that encourage a love of science, technology and engineering at an early age.
  • Fun, hands-on activities. Our interactive exercises engage kids' hands, as well as their minds -- great for children who learn in different ways.
  • Ongoing communication. We keep you up-to-speed on the robotics and STEM skills your child is learning and what to expect next.
