Robotics Coding in Summer Camps with robots for kids using Arduino
After School Programs:
Our experience teaching Coding, Electronics and Robotics is that students are truly passionate about technology.
Now how do we transform this passion into learning?
We have developed a 4 step approach.
Step 1: Understanding the basics while having fun. Our lectures are designed to introduce new concepts with immediate practice so the students can see results and have fun at the same time. Simply cause and effect.
Step 2: Introduction of complexity. Now that the student has experienced cause and effect, it's time to make them reason and struggle a little. However careful line needs to be considered as we don't want students frustrated.
Step 3: Developing trouble-shooting skills. At this stage student is comfortable with the tools. More complex problems require more complex solutions. It's important students develop trouble-shooting skills to test and breakdown problems. Having a coach to help students solve problems by asking questions rather than showing the solution is critical in developing the required skills.
Step 4: Self learning. That's the most exciting stage and when the efforts, investment start paying off. Turning ideas into projects, letting imagination dictate what we want to do, and using the tools at hand to make them reality. Our coaching turns into offering advise on how to manage the project and provide a global view of what needs to be considered.
This process is no different than learning a martial art or a musical instrument. It requires dedication, discipline and close collaboration with parents. At Robo-Geek we are passionate about developing the future technology leaders. We are extremely proud of what our students have accomplished and the relationship we have developed with parents over time.
We offer after school programs in Milton and Brampton. Students present their projects to their parents upon completion of each session.
In May 2019, on Thursdays we will start our STEM & Robotics Jr. Club in our Brampton location; the first 12 week project will be The Chess Project, where students will learn how to play chess and how to write the code for a Chess Game using Python, Pygame and AI.
We have started offering After School courses on Tuesdays in our Brampton location.
Milton STEM & Robotics Jr. Club: Mondays 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Brampton STEM & Robotics Jr. Club: Thursdays 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Milton Robotics & STEM Club: Wednesdays 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Brampton After School Courses: Tuesdays-Thursdays 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
