Robotica Nation Gozo back for a second year for Gozitan children
|Email item||Print item||
Robotica Nation Gozo is back for a second year for Gozitan children aged between 5 and 14 years – with something for boys and girls.
The course, which is offered by TCTC, aims at introducing children to the unique experience of learning about robotics; programming logic, and structural design with TCTC’s MRT Robotics Kits.
The children will be able to use pulleys, levers and sensors to construct snapping alligators and snipping robots, then program the robots with the specially designed visual drag- and-drop software.
The company said that students will build a strong foundation of coding and robotics skills for their tech future, turning their creativity into moving objects.
In this kids’ robotics training course, students are taught engineering basics with an emphasis on exploration, trial and error field testing. Instead of simply ”snapping bricks together,” students are encouraged to think “critically and logically about how and why their design needs to adapt to changing conditions,” the company said.
The company said that its guided, personalised instruction allows younger kids to understand more complicated engineering techniques such as gear use pulleys and inclined planes – and TCTC said that this is just designed for kids from age 5. Must have finished the kindergarten.
The Robotica Nation course will be held once a week – 2 hours per lesson, and will run across 8 weeks in summer against a subsidised fee of €10.00 covering tuition fees and e-notes.
TCTC said that the €10 refund will be given at the end of the course if the student attends 7 out of 8 lessons.
