EFK : Robotics 101 (Ages: 7 – 14 years old)
March 24 @ 12:00 pm - April 28 @ 5:30 pmFree – RM440
With a growing economy that has a higher demand for STEM fields, it’s important that the next generation learns how they can make a difference in their world. That’s why Engineering For Kids offers a variety of classes and workshops that kids of all ages can enjoy.
Robotics camps and classes give students the opportunity to dive deep into the world of robotics and explore how computer programming and robot design can solve problems big and small!
Design and produce your own projects too – guaranteed to produce many giggles and grins!
We are now offer FREE TRIAL CLASSES ON EVERY FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH!
Opt for one session (RM70), 4 sessions (RM250), or 8 sessions (RM440).
ROBOTICS 101 (AGES: 7 – 14 YEARS OLD)
This curriculum of this program is designed to introduce students to both robot building as well as programming. The students will build robots and accomplish specific task while using their imagination to make their robot better than the basic robot. During the class, students will discover the Engineering Design Process in a real world setting as they test their robot multiple times.
|1||Pre-Lesson & Robot Intelligence||During the first two lesson, students will build their robots. Students will also discover that the robots have to be programmed and a robot does not work as soon as it is built. Students will be introduced to the concept of programming and try programming their robots to move in a certain manner.|
|3||Bouncing off the Walls||Students will put ultrasonic sensors on their robots to give them virtual eyes. The ultrasonic sensors do look like eyes, but they work by bouncing sound off objects to judge their relative distance. This lesson will provide insight into how SONAR is used in real world applications.|
|4||Arm Flexing||By the time student have reached the Arm Flexing lessons, they have a solid understanding of the mechanics of both the programming and build of their robots. Student will be challenged to program their robot to drive a ping-pong ball and hit the ball with an arm. The students will be competing against one another to get the ping-pong ball the furthest.|
|6||Line Follow||The Line Following lesson will introduce students to a new light sensor and build upon what they learned in Bouncing off the Walls. With light sensors, their robot will be able to differentiate between light and dark to navigate its way around a track.|
|7||Tug of War||In this lesson students will be challenges with overpowering their opponents. The students will build robots that pull against each other. Whichever robot is stronger wins. Aspects of the robot will be modified to achieve maximum traction.|
|8||Sumobots||The students will be challenged with building battle robots to push the opponent’s robot outside of the Sumo Ring. Students will need to use what they learned from prior lessons to make a robot that is very stable, utilizes sensors and maybe even an arm for flipping.|
