We will deliver your robot in time for your first course and it will be used in all future courses.
Each week we inspire children with additional activities using their robot and the course is pitched at the appropriate level for your child - this represents over an hour of fun and education every week & potentially much, much more as they are encouraged to design and create for themselves.

For your Pet-Bot:
.. well, we assume you're a parent but it's not a requirement ..
It's a winter (or another lockdown!) evening and the kids are in bed (or should be). They've got this new Lego-compatible robot and you're dying to try it out - "Lego sure ain't what it used to be!" - it's come a long way since I was a kid too!
We're offering a less structured, more informal club, still online, where we exchange ideas, conversation and our robotic Lego creations. Some people actually find this stuff relaxing! - at least it will get your mind off work and onto something creative, with a social element too. This is for the Lego / Robotics / Coding fanatics and yes .. the 'techies' amongst us!
This will be an evening club, starting 8 or 9pm and will use:
1 hour, weekly sessions, drop in format, price to be decided - please register your interest first, for a pilot course, and let us know any suggestions or particular interests you may have (Check our course themes below)
Our upcoming courses are based around the following themes, some of which are touched upon in our Introductory Course:
Feb - March, 2022, holiday and term time sessions available
Not just for birthdays or Christmas - a “Pet-Bot” enables coding & creativity for ongoing fun and learning. Your "pet-bot" is a low maintenance pet - no feeding, no toilet training, no mess - it just needs batteries.
As part of BlokTec’s hands-on, real-world learning approach, we provide an Edison Robot - yours to keep! Students will also be able to take advantage of their “Pet-Bot” for any future science or technology projects in addition to other BlokTec courses.
With coding options from bar codes and remote controls, to Scratch and Python, Edison is a robot suitable for all ages - from 4 to 16 and older.
Our research determined the Edison robot to be the best value, Lego compatible*, programmable robot currently available! For comparison, an entry level programmable robotics kit from Lego currently costs £125. An Edison robot retails for £45 (2020 prices).
Already have an Edison robot? – please advise and your course price will be reduced accordingly.
* Lego compatible: “Bloks” NOT essential but greatly add to the creative possibilities!
BlokTec is constantly on the lookout for the latest Lego compatible robots and technology. As part of our future courses, we plan to introduce:
