Think BIG Space

Primary School Workshops

We have a range of fantastic workshops to engage your students in the world of Robotics!

What's included in our workshops?

When you visit the Think Big Space, your pupils will be challenged to work as engineers - building and programming robots. Our workshops follow a 'learning through play' model and are hands-on, engaging and educational - providing pupils with a positive experience which can ignite a passion for STEM.

What we offer:
We have two amazing offers, our Think BIG Space workshops where you and your students will visit us in our Think BIG Space in Tallaght and for schools unable to visit us we have our fantastic Think BIG Mobile workshops where we bring our Think BIG experience your school.

What we need from you?
In order to book a free workshop at the Think Big Space, check out the workshops that we can offer below, choose the dates that best suit you and your students, fill in the required information, and that's it! You are all set to bring your class to experience our robotics workshops.


What will your students discover in our workshops?


Our workshops provide an opportunity for young people to discover STEAM and how we can leverage technology to improve our world


Teamwork makes the Dreamwork!  All of workshops leverage the power of teamwork to enable young people to develop collaboration skills.


We are all Creators and our workshops inspire young people to be creative and innovative as they design and build a range of unique robots

Problem Solving

Participants will be challenged to solve a range of problems during our workshops that will include Engineering and Coding challenges.

We bring the Curriculum to life!

Our workshops are designed to bring the STEAM to life, enabling engaging, hands-on learning

We have a wide range of age appropriate workshops that have been developed to bring the Primary School STEAM curriculum to life.  Our workshops follow the principles of integrated learning, enabling participants to connect real world problems with their educational experiences to solve problems.

Key Habits of Learning

As your students engage in our workshops they will develop key habits of learning vital for their future education and careers.

From problem solving, persistence & perseverance to collaboration, listening and empathising to name but a few.

Computational Thinking

As your students interact with our materials & coding language they will engage in key computational thinking concepts such as decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction and algorithms. Enabling students the ability to take complex problems and break them down.

Engineering Design Process

Throughout our workshops your students will follow the engineering design process. Defining the problem, brainstorming solutions, developing prototypes and testing and iterating their solutions.

A key framework from problem solving in our daily lives.

Our Range of Workshops

Introduction to Robotics

In this hands-on workshop, your puils will work as engineers to assemble their own LEGO robot, and then work together to build sequences of code to program their robot to complete challenges.

These workshops follow a learning through play model and are designed to create positive experiences using technology to foster a passion for STEM.

Intermediate Robotics

Here pupils will investigate more fundamental coding conceptst such as loops and conditionals as they build and program a robot to complete more complex challenges.

This workshop is ideal for pupils who have already attended our introduction to robotics workshops.

Creative Coding

In this workshop, pupils will work with the irobot root robots, a robot that can be used to create art! Pupils will investigate building sequences of code to control their robot as they move through a series of challenges.

Here pupils will be creating 2d shapes and patterns, using angles, measuring and estimation.
