Robotics (primary) and Coding (teen+) for Success Club (executive function)

Everyday tasks, assignments and work deadlines can cause a lot of stress for families as young people can forget to do them or leave preparing for them until the last minute. Succeed uses robotics or coding as activities to teach practical executive function strategies, including focusing, organisation, and problem solving.

Why attend?

Some young people can struggle to show what they are truly capable of at school, work, or home, due to difficulties with focusing and organising themselves. Succeed provides a social, practical and motivating context for young people to learn these skills through the use of robotics and coding. 

How does it work?

Sessions are held for 1 hour per session for 7-35 year olds, 3-4pm fortnightly Saturdays. A parent/carer is recommended to attend the last 15 minutes of the session, to help individualise the program for the young person between sessions and to reinforce the skills being developed.
