Our Robotics Course is unlike any other. Students write code on their computer from home, then test it on our virtual Robot, then see that working on a REAL ROBOT via Cameras. Unlike any other we said – Right? Right! We use LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 and other Industry leading Robots for the course.
Our curriculum includes videos, animations, virtual robots and REAL ROBOTS in our online lab viewed via cameras. Course is a sequence of projects, each resembling a real-world problem to be solved. The projects are handpicked from each industry, ranging from agriculture, logistics, transportation to climate change and so on. Concepts are thought via projects in order not to bore the students, but still covers the concepts and big ideas in Robotics.
No more sporadic courses for coding, robotics, AI etc. All our courses are part of a very carefully planned Curriculum spanning from Level 1 to Level 4. We offer online and in-person private coaching too.
This course covers 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. We do use some other robots also. 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 and Cameras.
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. Please see our FAQ page also for some details. https://cloverdalerobotics.ca/frequently-asked-questions/
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.
