Our Spring camps are now open for registration. We are looking forward to welcoming a new batch of budding Canadian innovators. We have the following kids classes/workshops lined up. Register today to save yourself a spot. Shipping is FREE for all our STEM kits! All our programs are aligned with Canadian science curriculum and taught by Canadian Engineers.
a) Robo Engineers – We will provide the Robot kit that kids will assemble, build and code in a series of 5 workshops. This hugely popular program teaches the basic of sensors, motors, coding and real life applications of robotics. Kids will enjoy the block based coding of a robot car and develop the logic to ensure the robot avoids obstacles in its path. They will be introduced to different types of motors used on Robots and develop an appreciation for the wide range of robotic applications in our daily lives. After the workshop, kids keep their robot and we provide ideas on how they can continue to add new features and build new functionality. We encourage them to think independently, and daily challenges help them practice the content.
Why Robotics is important for kids?
Robotics is quickly becoming an important aspect of our everyday technology use. Therefore, basic understanding of robotics is essential to be able to understand the working of our modern day tools. In addition to technical skills, a good Robotics program can help kids improve problem solving and analytical skills.
b) 3D Modeling and 3D Printing – In this 3D modeling class, we use the very popular Tinkercad program to introduce kids to the 3D world. Kids learn how to create, modify and adapt basic 3D shapes to meet their design requirements and their imagination. They will use the 3D knowledge to design a cool balloon powered car. Once the design work is complete, kids will get a chance to learn about additive manufacturing technology aka 3D printing! Their personalized, 3D printed parts will be shipped to you for the final assembly and testing of our balloon powered cars. Vroom vrooooom!
Why Learn 3D Modeling?
3D design and modeling helps give ideas shape. It is much easier to visualize, design and develop new products in 3D world. 3D modeling is being extensively used in numerous fields including Animation, Medical, Arts, Architecture, Biology, Mechanical and Electronics. Kids can quickly learn these 3D skills and apply them improving their own personal projects and classroom assignments.
c) Budding Engineers – We cannot have a season without this crowd favorite hands-on STEM maker workshop. Through a series of 5 STEM classes, we will build cool working projects including a launching rocket, catapult, a flashlight powered electric car and many more. The STEM kit for these projects is delivered before the class starts. In this fun series we demonstrate several science principles with the help of cool simulations, science demonstrations and fun quizzes. Kids get an overall experience of how science, technology, engineering and math tie together for a successful working prototype. And this is just the start of their STEM journey!
We hope to see you this Spring! We ship our project kits all over Greater Vancouver, Langley, Abbotsford, Maple Ridge, Victoria, Kelowna and Kamloops, and Interior.
