This course encourages imagination and creativity while empowering them to execute what they imagine. Robotics 2 also strengthens the value of independence as they create their robots on their own with supervision from their teacher. It is recommended (though not required) that the students take ALICE 3D Animation and Programming first prior to taking this course. Recommended for: Teens: 11 to 18 years old.
