Design, program & control fully functional robots by applying science concepts.
This hands on class will unleash the creativity of younger kids ages 6-10 as science and
engineering collide. Starting with the foundation of simple scientific concepts, students will learn the engineering approach to design practical machines that they can to take home. We will create roller coasters, rubber band cars, and catapults to name just a few.
Club 1: Mondays, 6:00pm
Club 2: Thursdays, 5:00pm
These clubs meet 4 times per semester and cover specific topics and themes with innovative STEM projects and experiments.
Curiosity peaks when children are faced with using everyday materials to solve real world problems. Today, the field of robotics is booming and not for gaming alone. Cars, smartphones and thermostats at home are just some of the items we use without even thinking of their ties to robotics and mechanical engineering. At SJIC, children are introduced to new challenges in robot building that encourages problem solving and collaboration in an interactive learning framework that encourages and exploration. Creative problem-solving and unique STEM skills are at the core as students participate in challenging activities that foster a love of science, technology and engineering.
