Program Description

Robotics WE DO

Students will build LEGO Robots and connect it to the computer. LEGO® Robotics classes would help students to understand a link between the virtual world (Computers and programming) and the physical world (represented by LEGO® models). Students would learn basics of programming, engineering and constructing. Students will build dancing birds, drumming monkeys, hungry alligators etc. and explore the many creative possibilities of engineering with the help of our instructors.

 

Advanced Robotics

Robotics experience is needed for this class. Students will follow step by step instruction on laptop to build LEGO Robots. These robots have some missing information on gears, axle, etc. and they cannot move. Our robotics engineer would fix them and make them move with their robot building and programming skills. 

 

Engineering

Its engineering time! Build and explore machines and understand their mechanisms, investigate motorized Legos, and study gearing mechanisms. If you like building with LEGO bricks you will love these new concepts for building and developing mechanical understanding of the world around us. We will do buddy building. Sprinkled between builds will be opportunities to team build and problem solve in groups. Students need Robotics experience. In each class students will perform programming exercise. 

 

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 step by step instructions. Students have to use their robotics knowledge and build robot. 

 

SCRATCH Programming

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. In our scratch classes, students will learn to build games, spirography, dance party, etc. 

 

LEGO Mindstorms NXT/EV3

Lego Mindstorm is for students to learn how to build and program robots varying degrees of difficulty. Students will download pre-programmed sequences to help them begin to see the possibilities of their robot and then challenge themselves, and each other, to modify the program, using their own ideas, to make the robot perform additional maneuvers. The heart of the system is the NXT brick, an autonomous LEGO microprocessor that can be programmed with/without using computer. Once the students have designed their own programs, they are able to download it to the NXT Intelligent Brick. The program is sent from their laptop to the NXT using a USB cable. The NXT then executes the code that it receives from their computer. Developing programs with LEGO MINDSTORMS is intuitive and exciting.

 

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. 

 

LEGO/Mindstorms Group

Students will be working in a group to learn building with LEGOs and have fun! Students will work in a group and try to achieve assigned task. Students will have chance to give their idea and create from their imagination.
