The simpler course is Lego Wedo, https://education.lego.com/en-us/elementary/shop/wedo-2 for younger kids, the more complicated is Lego ev3 for kids 8 years and above, https://www.lego.com/en-us/mindstorms/about-ev3

Hope this helps.

For parents who sent your kids to this kind of courses before, please tell me more about it?
What do they do? what kind of activities?

I think before engaging them to any robotics courses, it would be best if you introduce puzzles like legos as early as possible. But of course if there's a nice opportunity, I would engage them to robotics classes that can help them a lot.

Agreed! Lego robotics toys is a good way to check if your child show some interest with robotics.. that way you won't waste money spending on something your child doesn't have any interest

I think rather than doing robotics you can try online programming sites, such as from mit. the idea of robotics is more to learn the concept of programming. I am into Robotics but it's more for industrial robotics.
Fundamental for lego robotics or any robotics programme is programming and simple machines. Using this knowledge then you apply the concept.
just my 2c worth.

Legos can help your kids develop more skills. Lego promotes fine motor skills. Children practice dexterity as they connect Lego pieces of different sizes and shapes. This requires different amounts of pressure to assemble and becomes a wonderful exercise for little fingers which supports children in being able to control the pressure they apply while writing.
