Students have the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions about strategies they are using to solve the problems they are working on.
We encourage hands-on exploration and experimentation to help children grasp fundamental concepts through direct experience.
Introduce young children to basic coding concepts through visual coding platforms like Scratch to prepare them for more complex programming languages,
This course is designed to teach students the fundamentals of programming in a hands-on robotics context. They will gain mastery over essential electronic components like LEDs, motors, and ultrasonic distance sensors through programming, fostering a deep understanding of code and a sense of accomplishment from building hardware. By the end of the program, students will be well-prepared to continue exploring robotics and potentially participate in competitions like FIRST Lego League and FIRST Tech Challenge. Throughout the course, we'll cover advanced topics like obstacle avoidance and path-following.
