Q: What are the students going to learn?
Students will learn how to code Dash And Dot robots using Blockly and will participate to the Wonder League Robotics Challenge. Here is an example of a challenge from last year.
Q: What do I need to do to register my child/children?
You need to sign up online to get enrolled and pay for the first month of participating in the league. Each month, we will send you an invoice. The participation fees are $150/month flat fee, regardless if your child is sick or cannot come to a meeting. This is to ensure we can hold her/his spot.
Q: I am not sure this is a right program for my child, how can I be sure?
Contact us so we can invite you to the next Meetup and come try it out. We will also host an information night with parents and students to give you more details about the program

Our program is $150/month starting September until TBD.
Q: What should my child bring?
Just bring yourselves! All robots, accessories and training material will be provided by us.
Q: What language will you be using?
There is no focus on specific language in this program. Students will learn the basics of computer science using a block-programming language called Blockly.
Q: Any prior experience required?
No prior experience required for this program.
Q: How many people are you allowing to join?
Each league will have a maximum of 8 students.
Q: Who will be teaching?
A Code for fun Instructor with experience with Dash & Dots will be coaching the league. However, the challenges will need to be solved by the students. The coach's role is to guide them, make sure they exchange ideas and they stay creative.
