Snapology’s Real World Robotics focuses on the real-life applications of robotics. In this program, your engineer will explore the basics of robotics while building some amazing & helpful devices with their classmates! They will explore how robots help humans live in the modern world and explore other worlds! While working with a partner to complete various challenges, your student will be taught how to effectively utilize sensors, how different mechanical components work in their robots, and how programming is a challenging but rewarding skill that they can master with just a little practice.
We will support them in the development of their coding and building skills and inspire them with creative building challenges.
Programming Skills: With each new model, students will be given a program to operate their robotic build. They will learn how to read the program code and then fix an error to make the code useable. By fixing errors in a broken program code, students will learn how to debug and modify their programs quickly. Whether making their build respond to various sensors, adding loops and fun sounds, or modifying variables, children will learn valuable programming skills through the Scratch-based coding platform.
Mechanical Elements: In each activity, students will be asked to identify the key mechanical components used in each robotic model. They will complete this before they ever build the model so they better understand how the pieces work together in the final design. They will understand the importance and use of motors, sensors, gears, axles, their robot Hub and so much more.
Following Instructions: An important component of this program is following verbal and written instructions. Throughout each lesson, your student will be required to listen, pick up on routines and follow instructions in order to complete the model and interact with their builds. The best part, practicing this skill comes easy in this program because your student is having fun and supported each step of the way.
Communication and Collaboration Skills: Small groups and peer partners are key components of Snapology's educational approach. We emphasize positive teamwork skills and constantly work to develop healthy, respectful collaborations between students. Through team projects and fun partner experiences, your student will become more cognizant of how to interact with their peers in a respectful and productive way.
