Join us to assemble a 60 cm tall meccanoid G15 robot from scratch. We will programme it with a mobile phone or an ipad and it will move and dance through learned intelligence. Suitable for children 8 - 11 years).
A workshop designed for children 8 - 11 years and runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
Robotics is going to be one of the popular science and engineering subjects in the future so get a head start. Students will develop dexterity by making a robot from a kit with more than 400 parts, wiring it up then using an iPad or iPhone to programme its movements. The students will work in small groups collaboratively to build their robot and can innovate a design with new features. At the end, robots will 'compete' with each other.
Students can bring an iPad or iPhone if they have one for programming their robot.
Note: this is not a take home project.
All materials provided for students to use. Please bring a water bottle and a packed lunch. About STEM learning:
STEM Learning is based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
