A Lego® Robotics course. Foundation and pre-requisite to all Robotics courses for ages 5 to 10. Build exciting robots. Use motors, sensors, gears, pulleys, levers, wheels and axles. Learn Engineering and Science concepts using computational thinking. Develop critical thinking. Attend classes, watch short two-minute videos. Construct robots. Program in LabView, a software with simple, drag-and-drop interface. Make the Robot move, react to stimulus like motion and sound. Solve challenges. Work independently and sometimes in group activities such as messaging between robots and computers.

This program advances kids from Wizard-1 program to the next level of Robotics by using coding techniques and creating more complex robots using Scratch programming and Lego® Mindstorms. During the first half of the course, kids use the Lego® Wedo Expansion kit provided in the class to work on several projects. Besides the Labview program provided with Lego® kits, kids are taught Scratch programming. This enhances their computercoding and design skills. Most Robots are intricate and require greater imagination and programming ability. Besides the Lego® expansion kit, kids are provided with the Lego® Vernie robot kit to create complicated robots that can walk, talk, move, shoot and perform other tasks.Therefater kids are taught basics of Lego® Mindstorms which has advanced motors, gears and sensors that produce powerful robots and realistic prototypes. These challenging robots are designed to test the student’s ability to design robots, understand coding algorithms and perform multiple tasks in a single program. Kids also take part in individual and group activities for creative exploration. On completing the course kids are adept at building robots using complex algorithms for programming sensors, motors and other electronic devices.

This program is an extension to the WizPro1 program and a transitional course that leads to Wizard-2. It advances kids to a higher level of understanding of STEM concepts applied to Robotics. Kids who enter this program are already aware of motors, sensors, gears and pulleys and how to apply them in an innovative or creative manner. They now get trained on advanced sensors like gyro-sensors, sound sensor, color sensors and ultra-sonic sensors and how they can be used in Robot construction. They are also taught mathematical concepts so that understand how to use geometric shapes, angles, rotations and calculations of force, distance, sound intensity etc. in a practical manner. Kids reinforce multiplication, division and mathematical formulas. By completing the course kids are ready to advance to the highest level of Robotics for middle – school kids, namely Wizard–2. Kids work individually or in groups to create a variety of Robots.

This is an advanced Lego® Mindstorms EV3 program designed for kids who graduate from our Wizard-2 course. Students go into deeper understanding of advanced concepts in Robotics and create advanced robots created from Lego® Mindstorms EV3 core and Expansion set. They create robots from a variety of advanced projects available such as Tank Bot, Stair Climber, ZNap, Elephant, Spinner Factory, Humanoid. They learn advanced concepts of programming, basics of networking, computer hardware, and software. Computational thinking is stimulated utilizing by utilizing Lego® Mindstorms EV3 kits, computer lectures and equipment such as iPads, laptops or desktop computers.

Age: 13+

Course: Coding+
Pre-Requisite: Wiz-X/ Middle School grduation
Duration: 20 Weeks
Frequency: Once a week (1.5 hours)
Age: 13+ years

This advanced course is designed for high school and college going kids or those who have completed advanced robotics courses like our Wiz-X course. Learners develop coding skills using Python language coupled with concepts of programming, basics of networking, computer hardware, and software. Computational thinking is utilized by providing lectures and demos using Raspberry Pi, a mini-computer that is programmed using the Raspbian operating system as well as Python libraries. Projects include creating LED traffic signal, building home surveillance systems, streaming live videos over the Internet, using sensors for weather tracking etc.
