Robotics for Kids is a fun and exciting eight week Saturday program for kids aged 6-18, designed and taught by the awesome Fundi Bots team! We have three different classes on Saturday and students are placed according to knowledge and aptitude.
The weekly sessions will explore themes such as electronics, structural design, energy and how robots work and move.
At the end of the program, the students will have built a robot, which they get to take home with them to play and experiment with!
Children will leave the Robotics for Kids program with:
In this great introduction to the wonderful world of science, students learn about electricity and magnetism, they will experiment with simple electronics components like motors and resistors. They will also learn to use electronics to detect physical things like light and touch. At the same time, they will get a fun and exciting introduction to programming and use that to create simple animations on the computer. They will also use tools like Lego to explore structures and mechanical principles.
Finally they will use that knowledge to design and assemble a simple robot, which they will get to take home after the training is over.
In this class, students build on principles on electricity and magnetism. They are also introduced to more advanced electronics components like capacitors and transistors, and timing circuits and explore the interaction of machines and computers. The students also learn how design and assemble electronics components on breadboards. The programming also gets more advanced as the students learn to use Scratch to manipulate electronic components using simple computer programs.
At the end of the class, they will design and assemble a robot, which they get to take home with them after the training to continue experimentation.
Things get a little more intense in the senior class. On the programming side, students get a quick introduction to visual programming with Scratch (covered in the Junior and Intermediate classes) and then are introduced to more technical programming using Arduino. On the physical side, they are quickly introduced to basics electronics and then move on to more complex electronics principles and circuits while learning how to program electronics components and use them to sense and change things in the real world.
At the end of the class, they will select a challenge for their final project and will also design and assemble a more advanced robot, which they get to take home with them after the training.
