Welcome

 

"to inspire kids, create learning opportunities, and enlighten inquisitive minds"

By   introducing youngsters to the basics of mechanics and robotics from a very  young age, the kids form a strong foundation from where they can make better and informed decisions when they have to make career choices in grade 9.

The younger the kids start in the club, the stronger their foundation becomes, as they have time to complete all the levels without having to push themselves to catch up with their peer group. It also helps them to solve problems easier, as creativity plays an important role in the problem solving process. It is a well known fact that younger kids are more creative than their older siblings. They also have more time to play with their creations and fix broken ones, which means – learning through   play – a special method of memorizing

Robotics was designed to introduce the science behind the design and operation of robots.

Robots are often classified according to their generation, level of intelligence, level of control and level of programming language.

Designing,  building, programming and testing a robot is a combination of physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, structural engineering, mathematics and computing.

In our classes the learners are working especially with the design process of   the robots and the programming thereof, but the teams that do compete, go one   step further and learn to draw their own building plans (LEGO CAD designing)   as well as how to present their designs to a panel of judges.

 

Objectives:  

Develop problem-solving skills 

Develop the ability to evaluate technological   products 

Develop the ability to design and build   independently  

Cultivate self-confidence, because technological   problems have no unique solution and there are an endless number of possible   solutions. 

Promote innovation and creativity, as well as   management and communication skills  

Have FUN!!
