This is an introductory (Level 1) course on Robot platforms, hardware & firmware. It is mostly same as our flagship School class for the same course. Students write, compile and run programs on a robot using the MINDSTORMS EV3 platform from their home and run it in an equivalent virtual Robot. Then the tested and fine-tuned code run in a real EV3 robot and shown to students via Camera. It is as close to real time you can get during COVID-19!

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.  

NOTES:

1) Audience: Our programs are geared towards kids genuinely interested in making things & technology in general, ie; computers, robotics, programming etc.  The Level 1 program is intended for anyone in the age group of 9 to 14 years who are new to electronics, programming, and robotics.

2) Alignment to BC Provincial curriculum for class 6,7 &8.

*All efforts have been done to cover as much portions in BC provincial governments curriculum. But be aware that due to the total time available for the course, we may not be able complete all the portions and assessments by School board. We are not a certified alternative education agency for BC curriculum.

*A windows laptop is mandatory for this course. Mac, IPADs etc. would not be sufficient as the virtual robots are not available for those devices.
