We continue fostering successful learners by putting the power of Robotics & Programming into the minds and hands of children.

We offer an exclusive opportunity to learn about robotics and programming by using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3. This equipment is a programmable intelligent brick which controls motors and sensors. It enables children to construct and program quickly and easily, and then progress to more complex robotic models.

Product Description

The importance of learning Robotics & Programming at a young age

Coding and programming in schools are becoming a central concept in many academic institutions these days. Aside from the practical impact of coding and programming for future careers, it also offers other benefits for children learning the process. For both, the academic and non-academic performance of the children, coding tends to make a positive impact. Several educational institutions now introduce coding in their curriculum, including universities. It seems like the world has become more dependent on technology nowadays, and knowledge of coding is an advantage in the professional world.

 

Academic impact

Coding and programming help children learn mathematics, in a practical way, since they start to visualise abstract concepts. Children are encouraged to see the real-world application of mathematics instead of relying solely on abstract figures that sometimes they cannot relate to. Children might also improve in writing because of the development of coding and programming skills. Children learn the value of planning before starting a task. They also learn how to be concise but accurate.

 

Extra-curricular impact: the development of skills for life

From experience over the last five years, we noticed that children tend to develop other skills through coding. Coding involves creative thinking, We stimulate children to be creative. Problem-solving skills, sometimes children tend to expect to be right all the time. However, coding teaches children to learn how to identify a problem and look for a solution. We also foster the development of resilience. Sometimes, some children tend to give up easily. We teach children that they need to try for alternate solutions to a given problem.

The emphasis is on fun, yet we inspire learning about concepts through dialogue and questioning.

 

 

In this course, children will:

 

Learn and consolidate fundamental principles of Robotics & Programming and mechanical engineering

Learn how to programme robots integrating ultrasonic, infrared, touch and light sensors

Understand how the world of robotics works and its applications within a given context

Work on practical activities and projects

Develop problem-solving skills, teamwork and resilience

 

 

Topics include:

First look at the EV3 hardware and software – Robot control – Moving blocks – Decision Making  – Learning maths running test with the robot  – React to the environment: robot sensors – Robo-gripper – Variables and Sensor calibration – Making your own block – Parallel beams – Intermediate menu system – Proportional control – Bug Algorithm – Array – Going Up and Down – Colour – SCARA Robot – Robot assistance – Robot swarm  – The Maze Runners – The Bio-inspired final challenge
