#NEM2017 STEM Robotics Workshop
American Society of Mechanical Engineers Ontario Section, National Engineering Month 2017, Engineers Without Borders, Mimetics Canada
We would like to invite you to our collaborative event between National Engineering Month, Engineers Without Borders, American Society of Mechanical Engineers Ontario Section, and Mimetics Canada to celebrate National Engineering Month 2017.
This time as ASME we are proud to offer a program for little engineers, scientist age 8 to 12. The goal for this FREE workshop is to get children interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
In just two hours, students will learn about robots how they work and then create programs that allow making a robot to dance, draw, and much more.
Skills and Lessons
- Basics of motion
- Input-processing-output control loops
- Basic programming concepts
- Introduction to Scratch Programming
- Seeing how a system’s pieces fit together to carry out a task
