Robotics 1

Intended Audience

  • Age Group 7-10 years old

What do I need?

  • Live Online Training : A laptop, and a stable internet connection. The recommended minimum speed is around 10 Mbps.
  • Grade 1 reading literacy
  • Grade 1 maths literacy

Certification

  • A progress report will be issued after each module like this module.
  • After all modules were completed, and the assessments passed, a Competency Certificate will be issued

Duration

  • 1 Year (40 one hour lessons, 10 per term, one per week)
  • Crash Course - This course can be crahed over a period of 1-2 weeks full time

Outcomes

  • It will change the way you think about robotics by making it possible for you to build real, working robots.
  • You will start with the basics as you build and program a simple robot to experiment with motors, sensors, and EV3 programming
  • Build a series of increasingly sophisticated robots that will show you how to work with advanced programming techniques like data wires, variables, and custom-made programming blocks.
  • Learn essential building techniques like how to use beams, gears,and connector blocks effectively in your own designs.
