About this Event

This session is part of our Halton Short Breaks project. These sessions are funded specifically for young people in Halton with additional needs. To be eligible for these sessions (if you haven’t done so already) you must register with us first, here: Register for Halton Short Breaks

This workshop is for those who are interested in Robotics, LEGO and Coding.

The two-hour fun and hands-on Code-A-Sphero workshop teaches the power of coding in a fun and creative (and safe) environment.

You will design and build a Sphero maze using LEGO, then learn how to code a mini Sphero to move (roll), change direction (spin) and alter its colour. Once the training is complete we put these new skills to the test by coding a mini sphero to escape your maze.

We will be operating in a Covid safe environment.

Mako, Carers & Short Breaks

The Breaks for Carers of Disabled Children Regulations was implemented in April 2011 to ensure Local Authorities would properly offer, and advertise, respite opportunities for those caring for a disabled individual.

We understand that families of disabled children want to lead ordinary lives. Like many of us, they want to provide the best care and opportunities for their children to feel safe, and to be healthy and happy. To help families achieve this Short Breaks have created the “Halton Children, Young People and Families Plan” (a.k.a CYPFP) which has three main goals: 

1) Early Intervention, to ensure families get the right support at the right time. 

2) Achievement and Ambition, to help young people get the right education or training so they can succeed in life. 

3) Healthy & Safe, to keep young people feeling safe in their home, school, and community.
