At CompuChild, we provide an extraordinary atmosphere for students ages 4 - 14 to learn while having fun. The activities are designed to trigger young children’s lively imaginations and build their self-confidence. We offer STEM focus classes, MATH Homework Help and Programming Classes! We introduce children to the expanding world of technology, teaching them its functions, capabilities and possibilities through hands-on learning.
Our programs are offered at our location, schools and libraries of Fairfield County. To offer quality classes our students to laptop ratio is 2:1. We provide guidance for FLL and Jr FLL, so that student gets a chance to demonstrate their learning.
2014 FLL: FIRST place Robot Performace, Robot Design, Mechanical Design Award at STATE Level
2013 FLL: SECOND place Robot Performance
Robotics: Robotics I -II, Advanced Robotics I-II, Engineering/Reverse Engineering
Programming: Scratch, WEB, Python
Math Tutoring: Grades 3-4 Common Core State Standards
Robotics I: Students will be able to build LEGO models featuring working motors and sensors. Instructors would help them program their robot. Activities include building models of helicopter, swing, birds, penguin and much more. Ages 4- 5
Robotics II: Students follow instructions on laptop to build robot and learn mechanism using gears, sensors, pulleys, motor, etc. Learn engineering principles: gear ratio, design process and problem solving. Students will start learning basics of programming. Activities include building models of Spinner, Lion, Monkey, and more. Ages 5+
Advanced Robotics I: Students will follow instruction on laptop to build LEGO Robots but the instructions have some missing information on gears, axle, or motor and they cannot move. Our robotics engineer would fix them and make them move with their robot building and programming skills. Ages 5+
Advanced Robotics II: Students follow instructions on laptop to build robot and learn mechanism using gears, sensors, pulleys, motor, etc. Learn engineering principles: gear ratio, design process and problem solving. Activities include building models of Spinner, Lion, Monkey, and more. Ages 5+
Engineering: Students will follow the instruction to build the robot but here technology is the key! Program your robot to move in the right direction and speed. Engineering helps student to be proficient in building and programming. Ages 6+
Reverse Engineering: Rev Engineering is for students who has done other Robotics class. Students will be given challenge to build robots by looking at the picture of robot. There would be NO instructions. Students have to use their robotics knowledge and build robot. Ages 6+
LEGO Mindstorms NXT/EV3
Students learn to develop LEGO Models and program that is creative and intuitive. Students build and program robots varying degrees of difficulty. Mindstorms/EV3 prepare students for the competitive workforce, especially in science technology; which is and will be in great demand. Ages 8+
We are introducing a new way of learning EV3 where students will work together to build a robot and solve a challenge given to them in each session. Challenge are design to encourage students to learn about building mechanically stable robot, right use of sensors and the programming.
Challenges for the session:Follow the line: Star, Crescent Moon, Rocket, Get out of the box, Cross the path without impacting objects, Rescue missions. Ages 8+
Scratch is a graphical programming language developed at the MIT Lab. Scratch makes computer programming more engaging and accessible for students who are learning to program. Students learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively. Ages 8+
In Web programming, students will learn the basics of building website using HTML Programming and would learn to add styles to their website by using CSS. In this class, students will learn basic HTML tags and attributes, content structure, adding links to pages. Creating ordered and unordered lists, table and forms. Students will be given in-class assignments. Ages 9+
Python Games & Flowcharts
Introduce fundamental programming concepts of python by building games. We will build games like Madlibs, Guess the number, Roll the dice, Rock paper scissor with our Computer. Ages 9+
Math Tutoring Aligned with CT Common Core- Grades 3 - 4
Semi-private tutoring individualized to meet the needs of your child. CT certified teacher will evaluate the students and work with students in small group to improve the skills they need to focus on. Teacher will structure the program on the basis of evaluation to enhance students learning. Optional homework practise worksheet will be given at the end of the class. Weekly progress report will be communicated to parents. Max 8 students.
