Mindstorms Workshop - Build & Play
Our Mindstorms Basic programs are very comprehensive that involved some mathematical concepts that are only being taught at Primary 4 and 5 level.
An 8 or 9 years old child can start our basic program as it is not too difficult to understand and to benefit from the program, the children need to come with an open mind and realistic expectation because it is not just robot building. Their learning experience includes structure design, weight distribution, the methodology on trouble-shooting, the proper way on using Lego components for the connection, transforming learning concepts into application, etc, besides STEM concepts, making the entire learning experience fun and educational.
For those children (or parents) who are not certain about the program, we have prepared 4 different one-time trial-class that consist of constructing the following robots. The programming will be provided with explanation on how it works with the robot:
Conveyor system – 80 connection steps;
Bridge Launcher – 75 connection steps;
Flight simulator – 70 connections steps;
Manipulator – 70 connection steps
Each robot has its own intricate connections that avid builders like. When it works according to its program, the robot comes alive and it becomes an interesting toy model to play with.
Students who just want to join the workshops to experience using Mindstorms components to build robots are welcome! Please take note that we do not have a fixed schedule for a specific robot as the lessons are not related to each other. We believe this provides flexibility to the parents/ students as they do not need to wait until a particular date for the lesson.
