Junior Builders Program, for ages 5–8 ($49)

During the October school holidays, children of Biogen employees ages 5-8 will have the exciting opportunity to participate in a fascinating Building and Junior Robotics program. This program will be run at Biogen and will be conducted by BRICKS 4 KIDZ!

The school holiday program is designed to engage children with fundamentals of Building, Coding and Junior Robotics and is subsidised by Biogen.

How would you like to turn your next LEGO® creation into a robot, programmed to do exactly what you tell it to do? The Junior Builder Coding with Robotics program offers all the fun of building with LEGO® PLUS the challenge of software coding!

We’ll start by introducing our unique kits with motors and batteries to get the children building motorised models using our 2D and 3D designs. We’ll build on the skills acquired by introducing WeDo® Junior Robotics in the afternoon. Using drag-and-drop icon-based LEGO® WeDo® software, this fun, action-packed program provides an inspiring and accessible introduction into the world of computer programming and robotics. It combines real-life skills with real-kid fun!

Supervision is available from 8am – 4pm.

Please note this workshop is ONLY for the children of Biogen Sydney Office employees. Please use your Biogen email address when enrolling your child.

All kids get to take home a BRICKS 4 KIDZ cap at the end of the workshop!

There are limited spots so BOOK EARLY to avoid disappointment!

Master Builders Program, for ages 9–12 ($49)

During the July school holidays, children of Biogen employees ages 9–12 will have the exciting opportunity to participate in an engaging Coding with MINDSTORMS® Robotics program. This program will be run at Biogen Sydney and will be conducted by BRICKS 4 KIDZ!

The students will use LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 technology to plan, test and modify sequences of instructions from a variety of real life robotic behaviours. Students will be captivated as they incorporate the newest generation of motors, sensors and software by programming their commands directly into their own purpose built robots. Students work in pairs to solve challenges, allowing them to learn complex problem solving and team work skills, in a fun environment.

This program is subsidised by Biogen and provides opportunities for students to learn new skills and participate in activities with a strong focus on STEM learning!

Supervision is available from 9am – 5pm.
