COVID UPDATE

Due to COVID and the uncertain nature of school re-opening in September, there would be some changes to our location and schedule.

Meanwhile, we are encouraging everyone to register for Online Courses starting September.

Summer Camp for Aug 17th to Aug 21 is also open.

SUMMER CAMPS! CODING BOOTCAMP

Our Online Summer Camps are on! Our online coding bootcamp introduce them to the world of computer programming in a systematic and fun way! Include algorithm creation, Scratch & Python!

Begin by learning about algorithms and other foundational concepts of computer programming, move on to learning scratch and apply the learning in creating interactive programs.

The one-week course introduces the kids to scratch to get them started with programming. 

In the two-week camp, kids build on what they have learned in the week one by learning about Python, a general purpose, industry leading language in a fun and engaging way. Your kid will leave the camp having created a real-world application in python.

REGISTER TODAY: Very affordable rates! https://cloverdalerobotics.ca/register/

SUMMER CAMPS! ROBOTICS!

Our Online Summer Camps are on! Make the best use of your kids time staying safe while opening doors to the world of robots!

Learn Robotics while having lots of fun racing LEGO EV3 robots! This course is designed to introduce kids to robotics and coding in a fun and exciting way. 

The one-week camp introduces them to the basics of EV3 robots to navigate basic racetracks. 

The two-week course continues to more complex racetracks and where the kids get to use advanced programming methodologies to control the robot around the track.

Next Online Class Starts on May 19th

Next Class Starts May 19th 4 pm for Programming Scratch and Python. 5 pm for Robotics:

RPF – ROBOTIC PLATFORM FUNDAMENTALS

This is an introductory (Level 1) course on Robot platforms, hardware & firmware. Students write, compile and run programs on a robot using the MINDSTORMS EV3 platform and run it in an equivalent virtual Robot. The tested and fine-tuned code is then run in a real EV3 robot and shown to students via Camera.

The course offers a structured sequence of programming activities in real-world project-based contexts. This curriculum includes videos, animations, virtual robots, Cameras and step-by-step lessons designed to help beginners learn behavior-based programming using the LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 hardware and EV3-G icon-based programming software.

CPSP – COMPUTER PROGRAMMING USING SCRATCH AND PYTHON

CPSP is an introductory (Level 1) course on Computer Programming. Include both theory and learning via projects. First half of the course focus on programming foundations and visual programming using Scratch. Scratch is a drag and drop programming language ideal for kids and widely popular. The latter half the course moves on to standard programming language of Python. This is a very powerful programming language (For example, most of the Instagram is written with python).

Online Classes on Robotics and Computer Programming Starting in April.

We had to cancel all our planned regular classes starting in April due to COVID-19. However, we have migrated the Robotics classes from Adams Road to Online format successfully. We are moving the April classes also online with some changes.

Robotics Platform Course is increased from 10 hours total to 20 hours total. This will help to reduce the homework portion and get more support from instructors.

Robotics Components course can NOT be done online. Instead we are starting a programming course which can be done online. This is also 20 hours total.

Timing are made in such a way that it will NOT overlap with regular school hours whenever schools reopen in BC.

To know more about the effectiveness of our online courses visit our FAQ section and see current online class pictures/screenshots.

COVID-19 Update for ongoing Boundary Park Elementary & Frost Road Elementary Courses.

Hope you have seen the latest update today from provincial government that the schools are being closed indefinitely. If you haven’t, it is here https://vancouverisland.ctvnews.ca/b-c-suspends-all-k-12-classes-in-the-province-1.4856530

Since we use Surrey school board facilities, and to ensure the health and safety of all, we are switching the RPF course to an ‘online’ + later ‘in person’ format and postponing the RCF course. Details below.

Robot Component Fundamentals (RCF): Postponed until further notice.

RCF course focus on the internals of Robots and focus on building and programming them from scratch. This course can also be done online but students need the robotics kits we use. So, we will have to postpone the course until the situation get better, or students can buy/rent kits. Cost to buy the kit will be ~$350 CAD online total. We are trying to make an arrangement to rent it for $50 but too early to promise. We will be in touch with parents about this.

Robot Platform Fundamentals (RPF): Mixed format. Same date & timings. Classes to be online till COVID get better. Then switch to in person mode. Our hope is the first 7-8 classes to be online and last 2-3, ie; from May end onward to be in person assuming COVID-19 would be managed by then. If not, those will also be online.

The RPF course explore the programming of robots and configuration of them for different industries. It is an introductory course and no previous computer/programming background needed. In this course, we are already using a virtual robot to execute the programs written by students, which we can continue to use in the online format also. We will use the last in person classes to run all the programs written by students in the real robot. So, we are not expecting any issues in converting this course to an online format.

Students need a windows or Mac PC to be able to do the RPF course. It will not work on Ipads. In the real classes we were planning to give a laptop for those in need, which is not possible in the online class. So, your kid might need this for an online course. We might need some additional time to help each student install some software etc. but we will arrange that.

We are also planning to start some new mixed (online + in person in June/Aug as COVID get better) batches sooner, including during weekends. If you would rather switch to that right away by a reply email or phone call.

You can see our latest course offering details here. So please bookmark this. https://cloverdalerobotics.ca/course-registration/
