The program offers a hands-on, project-based learning approach to teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts in a fun and engaging way. This program helps to prepare future generations of engineers and scientists as well as lifelong learners.
The children build their own robot following the step-by-step instructions and then use a computer to program the robot to accomplish a predetermined mission. All workshops are different in missions, attachments, and games.
Ages: 7 and up
EV3 Robots have changed the way we think about robotics by making it possible for anyone to build real working robots. This program is great for enthusiastic kids and teens who like building and designing new things. It begins with the basics as kids build and program a simple robot to experiment with motors, sensors, and the EV3 programming software. Then, they advance to a series of increasingly sophisticated robots that will show them how to work with advanced programming techniques like data wires, variables, and custom-made programming blocks. Additionally, they learn about essential building techniques like how to use beams, gears, and connector blocks effectively in their own designs.
Ages: 8 to 15
Arduino Robots are the all-in-one solution for enjoying a hands-on experience in programming, electronics, and robotics using specific detailed boards from Arduino and Scratch 2.0 software (developed by MIT). The Arduino Robots are connected to the computers or smart devices via Bluetooth or a 2.4G adapter (depending on available version). These easy-to-assemble Arduino Robots provide infinite possibilities for students to learn and submerge themselves in STEM (Science,Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Once a project is completed, they apply their new found knowledge to games that are mission objective oriented.
Ages: 5 to 10
Under Water Robots (ROV's)
In this program kids will dive into the world of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). ROVs are unmanned vehicles, which are operated by a person aboard a vessel or on land. They are connected to the controls by a cable that carries electrical current.
Campers will build their own ROV using a ROV-in-a-Box kit. The kit consists of easy-to- assemble parts that make up the electrical and structural parts of a ROV, in this case an Underwater ROV. Our ROV is going to be placed in a portable pool to pass through a series of obstacles while kids command them with a remote.
