Robotics Advanced – Starting Sep 15th at Mohawk College
Robotics is a highly motivating activity for children. It allows them to approach technology both amusingly and intuitively while discovering the underlying scientific principles. Robotics has emerged as a useful tool in education since, unlike many others, it provides the place where fields or ideas of science and technology intersect and overlap.
Our goal is to encourage children’s interest in science and technology, as well as helping to increase their technological literacy.
Children will be working in groups, independently and supported by tutors and mentors as they create, question, collaborate and find solutions to problems. Children are naturally curious about the world they live in. We build on that curiosity by teaching engineering concepts through hands-on learning.
Students will earn a certificate of completion after they have successfully completed the final project of the level there were registered for.
- Teach children how to make devices that are autonomous, capable of navigating through the world on their own.
- An introduction to what is Arduino and how to configure it.
- Basics of electronics, sensors, serial communication and motors.
- Programming robots.
Please don’t forget to bring your own laptop.
We ask the parents to buy the Robotic’s kit. (Kits are approximately $100 we will give you the link to buy it yourself or we can buy it for you ) ALL our students and paretns have agreed that they want to keep their projects at home (cars, Robots, jewelry etc)
“A lot of the Google inventions came from engineers just screwing around with ideas. And then management would see them, and we’d say, ‘Boy, that’s interesting. Let’s add some more engineers.”
