The purpose of our Level 1 program is to build a strong foundation for kids’ tech careers at an early age. This course is part of the larger, multi-year, planned program (Level 1 to Level 3) and is the beginner level (Level 1), designed to comfortably introduce children to the world of Robotics. In this beginners courses, we not only cover BC Ministry of education Grade 8 Robotics curriculum, we do a lot more. You can find the ministry curriculum here : Ministry of Education – Grade 8 Robotics Curriculum Check the robotics section.
The full program is two hours a week. The Robot ‘Build’ hour focuses on the electronic parts of robots and building robots from the ground up using robot kits, programming them, etc. The ‘Robot Programming’ hour focuses on programming pre-made robots, adjusting/replacing the mechanical parts, and configuring and programming them for specific purposes.
Robot Programming Option: In this hour, the focus is on the mechanical, customization, and programming aspects of Robotics. Students will learn the skill of solving interesting problems and making cool programs and routines with the help of a computer and our industry-leading educational robots. In this program, students work with some of the latest Robots in the world (And the first time in Canada). $120/Month for this one hour.
Robot Build Option: This hour covers all three aspects of electronics and robotics. 1) Electronics: This portion introduces children to basic electronic components such as motors, sensors, LEDs, etc. which are the hardware building blocks of robots. 2) Programming: This portion introduces students to the basics of Scratch like blocks-based programming with real-world applications. $120/Month for this one hour.
The Full option contains both of the above options and runs for two hours. $240/Month.
We bill monthly(No contracts or upfront payments). No kits to buy – BUT if students choose, they can buy the Robots for the build option ($250 to $500) and they want to and learn at home at their own pace too. We provide computers for all In-Person class students, so need to bring student’s own computers. This course is available in our Cloverdale location also.
Our Class size is at a maximum of 12 students per class. Public School Classes run from January 2022 to the end of June 2022 at the above Surrey Public Schools. Classes at our Cloverdale Center at 17720 57 Ave Surrey BC. V3S 1H2.
THIS COURSE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY A STEM 4 ALL. AN ALL WOMEN NON PROFIT WORKING TO BRING STEM EDUCATION TO ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS. CLOVERDALE ROBOTICS IS PROVIDING SERVICES TO STEM4ALL TO DELIVER THIS COURSE.
NB: The programming option course has an online format too($99/month) for kids who can not attend in person. Online course uses real robots with instructor shown via cameras. Kids access and program these real robots and see the actions via video cameras, in real time. Please see the course page for details & registration.
