We continue fostering successful learners by putting the power of mechatronics into the minds and hands of children. We offer an exclusive opportunity to develop coding skills using Arduino with specialists in the field. Children are encouraged to develop their coding skills in an environment that is conducive to learning while having fun.

 

Mechatronics integrates electronics with mechanical engineering, computer engineering, systems engineering and control engineering. Children will develop the ability to integrate electronics, control, software and mechanical engineering while having fun. The course is tailored to provide children with a unique learning experience in mechanical engineering and electronics with additional multidisciplinary contribution from the field of coding (using Arduino) and robotics and programming.

Product Description

The importance of learning mechatronics 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 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 and programming. Coding and programming involve 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 Arduino as a coding language, electronics and mechanical engineering

Learn how to write simple Arduino programs

Understand how programs work and what code does

Work on practical activities such as building their own applications using a microprocessor

Develop problem-solving skills, teamwork and resilience

 

 

Topics include:

Hands ON with Electronics! – Don’t Press the Button! – Bar Graphs with Sound! – Is Darkness Measurable? – The Traffic Light Controller – Human-Machine Interaction – Read the Message on the Screen! – Warning! – It’s About Time! – Be Safe! Adding Motion to Your Project! Awesome, but What is PWM? Flags Here, There and Everywhere, Let’s Design a Simple, Control Panel I, Let’s Design a Simple Control Panel II, We are All Musicians, Which Key is Being Played.
