Lego® Robotics with Scratch Programming

image

Kids 6 to 8 years old take this Robotics course to learn programming and Robotics techniques while building robots with Lego® expansion set. The curriculum focuses on Science, Mathematics, Technology, Engineering and Programming Skills. Thiscurriculum is designed to expand previous building knowledge gained through working with earlier WIZARD1 (Lego® EducationWeDo). Students work as young Engineers and guided through activities to build and program working models and apply new knowledge and experience to create new models (robots) and programs. They learn to create powerful robot prototypes using sensors, gears and wheels in multiple ways. This course engages kids in using complex programming logic and computations coupled with creativity. This program leads to other advanced STEM(Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) courses.

What Kids Do and Learn

1. Scratch Programming with Lego®: Scratch is the best way to introduce Computer Programming to young Students. It is a visual programming language.Students learn about Programming blocks (Motion, Looks, Sound, Data, Events, Control, Pen, Sensing, Operators,Extension block) in detail. Students learn to write programs inScratch and to use programs to control the Robots they create from Lego® bricks.
2. Creative Exploration: Students use their imagination and thinking to build their own Robots and using Scratch Programming software.
3. Guided Creative Exploration: Students learn to build Robotic Spirograph and one of the problem-solving activities like (Elevator, Safety Gate, Swing Ride, Carnival Game etc.) with guidance.
