Course «Robotics (6-8 y.o)» allows children using their creative abilities to begin to study programming, physics, computer science, mathematics and robotics in a playful way already in the 1st class.. This approach to training gives young engineers great pleasure in acquiring knowledge, motivating them to independently broaden their horizons.
The ideal age for starting this type of activity 6 - 8 years. . The child may have difficulty understanding the working principles of various mechanisms before. In addition, mathematical concepts are well absorbed precisely in parallel with their study in the school course.
In our classes, to learn basic design and programming skills, we use constructor Lego WeDo, designed specifically for the practice of designing entry-level robots. The designer, in addition to classic parts, incorporates a motor, a commutator and sensors that allow the model to work. With this kit, children can design and program through a computer application. The first programming concepts are introduced into the learning process: cycle, block, algorithm. Their study is based on the LEGO Education WeDo program, which uses a visual programming environment. The child dragging the icons into the workspace learns to write his first programs. All these tools allow you to set the model in motion in accordance with the drawn up program which causes children to thrill.
In addition the children learn to formulate, analyze, critically evaluate, defend their ideas. As a team, students acquire communication skills..
Choosing this course, you give your child the opportunity:
Choosing course ««Robotics 7-9» » - is a great opportunity for children to deepen their knowledge of programming using the WeDo graphical environment WeDo , as well as become familiar with language programming such as Scratch.
In the classes as part of our course the children using Lego Education WeDo not only assemble the models according to the instructions, but also create their own robots and give them a specific action program using the WeDo graphical programming environment and Scratch language. In addition the children are engaged in project activities, learn to present their models and work in a team.
The course is intended for children from 7 to 9 years old and is suitable not only for beginners, but also for those guys who have already encountered the construction of robots, as the classes provide for more complex and interesting models for assembly , the capabilities of which are amazing. In the classes devoted to this course, the guys create more complex algorithms for the actions of their robot in the graphical programming environments WeDo and Scratch.
Programming language Scratch provides more opportunities for implementing your child’s creative ideas . Using this programming language, you can «revive» your robot, create your own animation, cartoon, postcard, and even a game that you can play with your friend.
