Beginning Robotics

Aimed at children from age 7 upwards, our introductory robotics course makes use of the excellent LEGO WeDo 2.0 kit.

Students build models which are brought to life using an intuitive block programming language.

As students progress, we bring in more complex challenges and get them to build models that solve more intricate problems

2 levels/10 sessions a level

  • Age range 7-11

  • Build with LEGO bricks, Technic bricks and beams

  • Elementary block programming

  • Scratch programming

Intermediate Robotics

COMING SOON

Aimed at developing students building skills from standard LEGO bricks to building with Technic pieces and programming with more specific arguments, this course builds on the skills from Introduction to Robotics to make more advanced models.

2 levels/10 sessions a level

  • Age range 11-14

  • Build with LEGO bricks, Technic specialised beams, complex gears

  • Block programming with arguments

  • Scratch programming

  • Python Programming

Advanced Robotics

COMING SOON

Aimed at the confident Lego Technic builder, this course aims to get students building advanced machines and precisely controlling them.

Students learn design and computational thinking methods and will plan projects lasting a number of sessions. Students can use a number of programming languages to control their creations

2 levels/10 sessions a level

  • Age range 14-110

  • Build with Technic specialised beams, complex gears

  • Block programming with multiple arguments

  • Program in numerous languages

What is Beyond Blocks all about?

Beyond Blocks was set up with the initial aim of getting people to build awesome things from LEGO beyond what is illustrated on the box and by extension to stimulate everyone to think outside the box.

We are passionate LEGO fans, engineers, designers, teachers and nerds and we use LEGO to build solutions to problems because…it’s more FUN to solve things with LEGO!

Come and build with us and let’s go Beyond Blocks together.

I’m Andy Hoang.

I’ve been a Physics Teacher in high schools, a Learning Technologist, a Head of Digital Learning and a lifelong fan of LEGO.

Having taught adults and children using LEGO in 3 consecutive jobs, I realised that teaching with LEGO was my calling and I set up Beyond Blocks to bring my love of LEGO and Education together full time.
