Robtica Nation Gozo: Children’s 8-week summer course
|Email item||Print item||
There is still time to register for Robotica Nation Gozo, which is back this summer for a second year, aimed at children aged between 5 and 14 years.
The course – with something for boys and girls – is offered by TCTC to introduce children to the unique experience of learning about robotics; programming logic, and structural design with TCTC’s MRT Robotics Kits.
Students will build a strong foundation of coding and robotics skills for their tech future, turning their creativity into moving objects.
They will be 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 young participants will have the opportunity 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.
TCTC said that its guided, personalised instruction allows younger kids to understand more complicated engineering techniques such as gear use pulleys and inclined planes – just designed for kids from age 5 who 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.
