Student Virtual Bootcamp for Learning Robotics, Engineering, and Computer Science (Grades 4-8)
Calling all struggling new-to-home school parents! Are you having trouble navigating the new world of home schooling in COVID-19 crisis? What if your child could learn to build basic electronic STEM projects such as a night light, music composer, and intruder alarm outside of the classroom?
Thimble wants to help! We can bring educative, fun, and instructor-led technology projects back into their day to help teach them robotics, electronics, and computer science. This will be done with one of our hands-on beginner kits and four 1-hour build-along sessions broadcasted live during the next two weeks. The build-along session will help students construct their projects from start to finish, from your home.
The cost of the kit (originally $150) is now $99 plus shipping. The kit is reusable, and includes 12 mini-projects, with all the parts/tools you need to get started (no trips to the store!). This also includes 4 one-hour online group sessions for two weeks where students can build along with one of our professional instructors. Aside the kit, all that's needed is a computer, internet connection, and willingness to learn.
Since this is a pilot program for beginner students, we are launching 4 separate online workshops to start. 2 workshops will host 15 students in grades 4-6, and another 2 workshops with 15 students in grades 7-8. Options for time slots are in the form below. The first class starts Tuesday, April 7th. We will make sure you receive the kit in time. :)
