Robotic for Children
Robotics and Namibian Youth


  • The Goethe-Institut Namibia in cooperation with MindsInAction presents a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) Programme that aims to offer Namibian learners a new approach to knowledge and unveil a path to the application of 21st century skills.

robotics post ©Goethe-Institut Namibia Science and mathematics concepts combined with technology and engineering principles are revealed through the process of building and programming Dash robots and Lego Mindstorms EV3 robots. STEAM education creates innovative learners and enhances social entrepreneurship opportunities.

Participants will learn skills including:

  • Think independently
  • Identify problems and
  • Develop a prototype solution
  • Interpersonal communication
  • Collaboration
  • Confidence
  • Practical leadership
Participants have the chance to think of and build their own creations through exploring basic electronics, sensors, motors and alternative energy sources. What is learnt at school can be applied practically in real situations involving the fundamentals of technology and engineering, and the principles of programming through fun activities with robots. Critical thinking is also important and participants will develop research skills when solving real problems.
Learners  register with a once-off payment of 1600 NAD.

We offer four levels of robotics:
  • Level 0            Dash Robot & Programing with fun      6 to 12 years
  • Level 1            Lego Robotics & Engineering               8 to 16 years
  • Level 2            Robotics & Electronics                          8 to 16 years
  • Level 3            Robotics & Industrial Automation          8 to 16 years
Each term we offer a level 0 and Level 1 course, while start of level 2 and 3 courses depend on the number of registrations.
The Dash Course takes place on a Monday from 14h30 16h30 at the Goethe-Institut
