Robotics and programming: Robot in a can!

The team of computer scientists behind Robot in a Can specialize in teaching kids how to code, making it fun and easy for your children to learn Javascript. Using LEGO robotics, as well as the  Robot in a Can curriculum, programming feels like play! Your children will love building their own games and robots while they learn critical skills that help them succeed academically, no matter what career they choose!


This course introduces kids aged 5 years+ to the world of programming and robotics, via the LEGO robotics curriculum. Participants learn early programming skills by following LEGO’s graphical instructions, which is something kids are really good at!

Hands-on programming and graphical challenges encourage exploration, develop logic skills and teach basic computer literacy. The lessons are small enough for kids to grasp new concepts while being challenged with increasingly difficult tasks, all while having a lot of fun.

AGE GROUP: 5 years+
DAY & TIME: Saturdays 9am-10am 
PLACE: Collège NDL
PRICE: $600 

For kids aged 8 years+, this combined level 1 & 2 class introduces and/or builds on basic robotic concepts. Students create and explore with our amazing Robot in a Can, learning programming basics along the way. This course is also a STEAM introduction, teaching students creative approaches to problem solving and robotics. Students will learn the basics of drawing with code, making cool interactive objects that move and make sound. No pre-requisite required.

AGE GROUP: 8 years+

This class is offered via our Online Platform. An ideal option for those who can’t make our in-person Robotics and STEAM classes on Saturday!

Programming is easier than you think! With the help of Robot In A Can, learn how to build a website, make a digital illustration, create games and build with AI using HTML and CSS.

Whether it’s for a hobby or a career, learning to code is invaluable. Thinking computationally is a skill that will remain timeless. So why not give it a try? 

There is no greater education than one that is self-driven. – Neil deGrasse Tyson
