Our founder started his career in automobile manufacturing. Then, he served the computer industry. We live and breathe science and technology. We are passionate about STEM (Science, Technology Engineering, and Mathematics). We love problem solving. We have led teams in regional robotics competitions. We believe that the robotics will shape agricultural and industrial production and supply chain as well as deliver in the years to come. We love to enable school children to learn engineering by building robot and robot attachments to perform missions. We love to teach programming to make the robot to perform missions.
OUR PROGRAM STRUCTURE
How is our programs structured?
We teach how to assemble the robot. We teach techniques to build various simple machines and clever contraptions. We teach robotics programming. Then, we combine building and programming techniques to complete missions.
What robot do we use?
We use LEGO Mindstorm EV3 Education Kit. This kit comes with EV3 Robot Brick, two large motors, one medium motors, touch sensor, ultrasonic sensor, gyro sensor. The Home Kit comes with Infrared instead of Ultrasonic sensor. The wheels of Home Kit are smaller than that of the Education Kit.
What software do we use?
We use the paid version of Lego Robotics Mindstorm EV3 Education Software. The Home version is available for free. The home version does not provide means to program the Ultrasonic sensor. There are other differences.
Should the student purchase robot and software?
The student needs to practice outside of the class. We encourage purchasing Education Kit and associated software so that the student can practice outside the class.
Our Course Strength
My son loves regular Legos and computers so I was excited to try him out in this Lego Robotics course which brings both of these activities together. He loved it! He will continue on in the next courses so that he can enter into the competitions. It is important for students to start at the basics so one must be patient and learn the fundamentals and these courses teach just that. What I think is most beneficial is the foundation this will set for the future education of my child even though he may not realize it because he is having too much fun learning!
