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 using GAZEBO®.

GAZEBO® is a 3D simulator, largely used in the industry and for research at universities, that recreates virtual environments; with GAZEBO® children are able to create scenarios with robots, obstacles and many other objects. GAZEBO® allows children to rapidly test algorithms, design robots, perform regression testing and train machine learning system using realistic scenarios.

 

Our Tutors and Mentors are specialists in Robotics and Programming with experience in the industry and in research at universities.

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, mechanical engineering and Robot Simulation

Learn how to programme robots integrating ultrasonic, infrared, touch, light sensors in a virtual environment

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:

Libraries, Dynamic simulation, Advanced 3D graphics, Sensors, Static Objects, Circumnavigation, Plugins, Robot Models, Cloud simulation, Command line tools, Simulation Models.
