We know robots!

Since 2006, JEFA has taught robotics and coding with the LEGO Mindstorms sets. We currently offer courses and workshops with the Mindstorms NXT and EV3 for Grade 7+ as well as the LEGO WeDo platform for the Juniors. In recent years we have also developed a number of workshops and courses for the Arduino platform, as it is a powerful tool and links well to the makerspace movement.
Our robotics workshops provide learners with a practical introduction to the foundational principles of robotics and coding. Using the LEGO robotics systems, workshops and courses incorporate inputs and outputs and demonstrate how they allow a robotic system to interact with the world around it.
Learners build and program the robots with a drag-and-drop interface from a computer or iPad. We offer various themes and projects that guide learners with instructions on how to build and program models.
Workshops generally run for between 1.5 to 2 hours per session and can be run as a once-off introduction or extended into several days’ course. We run workshops in schools as well as running a robotics club at our HQ in Honeydew.
If you are interested in having our robotics courses incorporated into your schools’ weekly curriculum, please see our Curriculum Development page.

 

 

Robotics Courses

Robotics and Coding

Workshops cover a practical introduction to robotics through mechanical models, building and programming with the LEGO WeDo system and discussing what makes a robot a robot. What can robotics do, and is your granny a Cyborg?

Intermediate and Senior

The LEGO Mindstorms NXT and EV3 robotics platforms are used for Grade 7+ to teach the core principles of robotics and coding with an intuitive icon-based coding software developed by LEGO. The EV3 sets are currently used to run workshops in Johannesburg only, as we run classes in-curriculum for a number of school.

Arduino Courses

Courses introduce participants to the basics of building and coding with the Arduino protoboards. Through a series of increasingly challenging projects, the course covers basic electronics theory, the use of a digital multi-meter, prototyping, C++ coding and building robotic and automation systems. The Arduino Start-up Maker kit used for the course can be purchased for an additional R460.

Kingswood College

To the entire JEFA team,
Thank you so much for coming and spending time with us at Kingswood. There was an excited “buzz” around the campus this week! Thank you for your energy and passion and for sharing your knowledge with the children. In their words; “it was awesome!”

– James & the entire Kingswood staff
Prep Headmaster, Kingswood College, Grahamstown

St John’s

The JEFA team are thoroughly professional, inspirational and have facilitated really positive programmes at St. John’s College over the past seven years.

Headmistress, Auckland Park Prep, Jhb

St. Stithian

I loved walking around the various activities, seeing the children engaged, interacting, learning and having fun. Thank you to your highly professional and effective team of facilitators and thank you for arranging such a superb day for us.
