Description

Spend your PD Day from 9 AM to 4 PM, building and programming robots!

Friday -29th June 2018

Age Group: 9-14

Choose any workshops:

  • LEGO Mindstorms EV3
  • JavaScript Coding
  • Arduino
  • Raspberry-Pi
  • Android App Development
  • Python
  • 3D Printing and Modelling
  • mBot

Kids have special robotics program with hands-on learning at STEMOTICS centre. Register your kid's ages 4 – 14 for a full day of Robotics Camp. This one-day version of our popular program provides a full day of supervised educational activities, robotics projects, science experiments, and more! Registration is required.

LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 (AGES 9-14)

LEGO Mindstorms EV3 is designed for those with no programming background and introduces students to concepts such as coding, looping, decision-making and flow control as they utilize the visual drag and drop-programming interface. Both the LEGO WEDO Robotics and Mindstorms EV3 Programs offers a unique platform for STEM-based concepts such as:

JavaScript Coding (AGES 9-14)
JavaScript is the programming language of the Internet, the secret sauce that makes the Web awesome, your favourite sites interactive, and online games fun! JavaScript course teaches programming essentials through a patient, step-by-step examples paired with funny illustrations. You'll start with the fundamentals, such as working with strings, exhibits, and circles, and after that proceed onward to further advanced subjects. JavaScript lets you play music and create amazing visual effects.

Arduino (AGES 9-14)

The Arduino is a microcontroller board designed to introduce beginners into the world of electronics. Arduino’s hook up to basic electronic devices such as led’s, buttons and sensors, these devices are then programmed to perform simple or more advanced tasks. For example, an Arduino can be set up so if a button is pushed the led turns on. This teaches kids enrolled how to write basic programs and how to put together basic circuits and how it could be used in the real world.

Raspberry-Pi (AGES 9-14)
The Raspberry Pi is a small, cheap, single-board computer that outputs what the student has programmed it to do. Simple to use and program, it can be embedded in innovative projects and has been used to build Internet-connected dispensers, low-res plotters, cell phone–operated coffeemakers, and a solar-powered computer.

This course shows how to obtain, configure, and do simple tasks with a Raspberry Pi. Our Instructors shows you how to play sounds, boot up a GUI, program simple tasks, install software, and begin to explore hardware control with GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output).

Android App Development (AGES 9-14)
MIT App Inventor is an innovative beginner’s introduction to programming and app creation that transforms the complex language of text-based coding into visual, drag-and-drop building blocks. The simple graphical interface grants even an inexperienced novice ability to create a basic, fully functional app within an hour or less.
Teaching students to embrace computational thinking.

Python (AGES 9-14)
Python is a popular high-level programming language designed with a philosophy that emphasizes on ease of readability and syntax that allows programmers both beginner and experienced programmers to express programming concepts clearly and concisely. It’s an easy-to-use program for young students to learn and concentrate on core programming skills such as problem decomposition and program design. Students will be introduced to concepts such as computer communication, flow control, looping, design and documentation, and data manipulation, and use them to design projects with challenging levels of complexity.

3D Printing and Modelling (AGES 9-14)
Lets creativity meets production in this hands-on 3D course. Learn how to Design simple 3D objects and prepare them for 3D printing with Tinkercad. Designers, hobbyists, teachers, and kids use Tinkercad to make toys, prototypes, home decor, Minecraft models, jewelry – the list is truly endless!

Make something without any preparation just from scratch or import a more complex model to use as a starting point, and then watch your creation print and take it home!

mBot (AGES 9-14)

mBot is a low cost, easy-to-run robot kit for kids to get hands-on experience on graphical programming, electronics, robotics. It is an all-in-one solution for robotics learning and specifically designed for STEM education. An educational robot for individual and classroom use, empowering users to be innovative and creative while having fun. mBot is programmed using the mBlock software which integrates Scratch and Arduino programming. This programming language is both simple, powerful and very quick to learn. A platform with endless possibilities.

  • $39.99 per child.
  • Timings 09:00 AM to 04:00 PM
  • Extended Care from 4:00 PM – 5:00 pm: $10 per child;
  • Pre-registration is required. Limited space is available. Registration is on a first-come, first serve basis.
