Arduino is an open source Electronics platform associated easy to use hardware and programming.
This program introduces all aspects of STEM education involving robotics, coding and Electronics. Students make interactive electronic projects to make these projects work using robotics and coding concepts.
Age Group – Grade 6 onwards
No of sessions – about 30 weeks
Max students in a batch – 10
Fees – $130 per month
Activities & Benefits
Students start by learning basic robot building instructions, programming and movement then move on to working with sensors and more complex robot behaviors.
The research projects cover key STEM concepts, step-by-step programming instructions, and many challenge questions to reinforce key educational outcomes.
Towards the end of the course we shall introduce a team Challenge. The students will be given a task to design and build their own robot that fulfills the parameters of the challenge and compete against each other.
The challenge gives students a chance to take what they learnt and apply it through research, critical thinking, and creativity – and see how fun that can be!
It provides excellent opportunities for students to build key workplace competencies in areas such as planning and teamwork.
The program covers the following overall curriculum skills:
- Learn Robotics using Arduino, an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software, along with an introduction to various sensors helping them build and program their own robot.
- Introduction to coding using C++ programming.
- Learn how to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online.
- Learn different electronic components and the way it can be programmed through Arduino IDE.
- Take home Arduino Robot.
