 Programs Offered by CompuChild

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.

For students Grade 4+

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. We can build dragster, dogbot, race car, shift gear cars, etc.

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.

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. 

Animation

Everyone has a story to tell and in our animation class students create claymations and digital stories. Tell your stories with text, pictures and your own narration.

Our animation program allows student to express and develop new ideas, construct and manipulate shapes,  explore colors, create backgrounds, scenes, use motion to bring static images to life!
 

Computer ART

Learn, Explore and Create! Computer Art classes are designed to encourage a kid to work on a creative projects. The classes are for young artist. Each week we will make new fun project.

In our six weeks session, we will learn basics of photography by taking photos using our digital camera and edit by decorating it with stamps and borders. We will make our sketch photo book, personalized tablemats, magnetic stickers, calendar and cards.

 

Programs for Pre-school

Pre-Robotics

We bring LEGO Robotics kit, with the help of our coach kids build robots connect it to the computer and program it to move, spin, add sound and background. 

We make personalized stickers, cards, bookmarks, etc. with kids and print it out.
