ROBO Engineers – Obstruction Avoiding Robot
Sorry, This class is now full. If you would like to be informed about the dates for the next session or would like to add yourself to the wait-list please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Registration Deadline: JULY 31st
No experience required! Build a cool robot that uses sensors to guide itself through obstructions. Through the 5 days, participants will be introduced to robotics while:
- Assembling and connecting motors, controller, and sensors.
- Programming the behavior of the robot using an intuitive block programming interface
Robot kits will be delivered to your home. Kids will keep all materials so they can use the components to build other robots and continue exploring after the camp.
This workshop is geared towards kids in Grades 4-9.
What is Virtual STEM ?
This is a virtual/online STEM (Science & Technology) program for Grade 4-9 students with a focus on hands-on project based learning. This program/series includes 5 workshops, one per week. The topics covered are closely aligned with the BC Science curriculum. These workshops are held via live Zoom or similar conferencing software. All our instructors are local BC Engineers.
What’s a Typical Workshop like?
Each 90-minute workshop includes interactive computer simulations & demonstrations. Kids will learn science concepts and participate through random quizzes and polls throughout the class. During each workshop we work on building a hands-on science & engineering project using the materials provided.
How to get Robot Kit/Materials?
Cost for Robot Kit is included in the program fees. Robot Kits will be mailed before the start of the class. Shipping costs for locations outside Lower Mainland are not included. The projects are setup such that kids can complete them with minimal supervision, but parent participation is recommended for this virtual program.
