We are converting our Robotic Fundamentals course to an online format using the same process as our flagship RPF course. Would need some parental/adult help for the kids for this course.
So students get to write code which work on a virtual robot first. They get to move around, play with multi colored lights, making the robot make sounds, songs etc.. But then transfer the code to the real robot and see it working in via the camera! As the kids progress, we expose them to other robots too!
This course give them an age appropriate, world class curriculum and industry leading robots for them to comfortably enter the world of robotics and technology.
Students get hands on play and build with Lego WeDo, Dash and Dot, eVive etc, while getting to know Robotics and Programming. Our “Level 0” programmers will have a blast learning computer science fundamentals with these fun and engaging game projects. They create amazing games, animated images and songs in the Scratch/Blockly(Google’s product for junior coders) Programming language, one of the friendliest programming languages ever created. Kids learn the skill of solving interesting problems and making cool things with the help of a computer. Kids learn to program with eVive and Dash and Dot toy robots that make coding fun using apps on a tab. They also do activities like transforming robots to an alarm, play tag with etc.
1) Lego WeDo: A popular Lego robot for younger children.
2) eVive from Stempedia: Evive is a leading platform for robotics education with presence in 40 countries.
3) Dash & Dot: A Silicon Valley educational robotics firm with robots sold in 43 countries.
Age Group: 5 to 8 years. Our standard teacher to student ratio is 1:8 and our max size of class is 16. So we have either 1 or 2 instructors per class at the same time depending on the class size. Kids are categorized to four groups (4 * 4) based on their age initially. So initially kids of same age come together to do projects recommended for their age. However kids come with different natural talents and progress differently. So as the course and students progress over the months, we move them around to different groups within the same class.
Prerequisites: None. We provide everything required for the class including access to robots.
We offer this course as online class, Online Private and Group coaching and also IN-PERSON private and group coaching at students homes. See our private coaching page for details. https://cloverdalerobotics.ca/private-group-coaching/
